Big enough for the kids to climb on![M Bentley, 08/12/2012]
That President Kennedy -- still attracting young admirers.
These busts certainly caught me by surprise as I had not been staying on top of my roadside attractions after Wall Drug. Definitely a must see...you don't run across 15 ft. tall busts of presidents every day.[Suz, 07/13/2012]
Three large Presidential busts, about 15 feet high, look like they've recently been put in place. They stand in front of the Rockin' R Saloon & Steakhouse on South Dakota Hwy 79. Do you think they were to be called "The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly?" Probably not.[Jim Hejl, 07/25/2011]
Until we hear otherwise, we assume these are the same three giant heads -- JFK, Reagan, GWB -- that sat near Mt. Rushmore south of Rapid City to advertise Presidents Park in Lead.
