New SD Attraction To Replicate Independence Hall

August 24, 2013, 2:22 PM

New SD Attraction To Replicate Independence Hall
Independence Hall, Philadelphia, PA


Visitors to the Black Hills of South Dakota will have another tourist attraction on the map next summer.

A replica of Independence Hall - the birthplace of democracy - is under construction between the Reptile Gardens and Bear Country exhibits on the way to Mount Rushmore.

The replica will house a three-dimensional sculpture that represents John Turnbull's famous painting depicting the moment when the first draft of the Declaration of Independence was presented to the Second Continental Congress.

The project's developer, Rapid City businessman Don Perdue, has commissioned artist James Van Nuys to create the sculpture.

Purdue says he hopes the same patriotic loyalty that brings people to Mount Rushmore will prompt visitors to stop at his display.
