Solon Borglum Historical Monument Dedication

solon borglum markerSolon Borglum carved huge Native American figures in the Cairo bluffs.  Those carvings may have inspired his older brother, John “Gutson” Borglum, to carve Mount Rushmore years later.  A historical marker on Highway 2, approximately 5 miles west of Cairo, will be dedicated on Saturday, August 20th at 10:00 am in recognition of the works of the Borglum Brothers.

This marker is the cumulation of a community partnership between the students at Centura Jr./Sr. High School and the town of Cairo for the past school year.
