  • City of Presidents | Rapid City

“City of Presidents” sculptures in Rapid City reveal this region’s patriotism and fondness for our nation’s leaders. In fact, Rapid City has been honored with the designation of "Most Patriotic Best Small Town in the United States" in part because of this fantastic city tour. Standing or seated on busy street corners downtown, life-sized bronze statues of 42 U.S. Presidents surprise pedestrians and motorists. The City of Presidents project is an artistic approach to economic development conceived by Rapid City businessman Don Perdue and is 100% privately financed. It’s a collaboration of U.S. history, American patriotism, public sculpture and national pride.
