South Dakota Public Records

Forever etched into its scenic landscape, the likenesses of great American Presidents characterize the state of South Dakota. This state sits in the Midwestern region of the United state, and became the 40th state in the nation on November 2, 1889. South Dakota measures 77,116 square miles in total area with dimensions of 210 miles in width by 380 miles in length; 1.6% of the state is comprised of water. The climate in South Dakota is continental. There are four separate seasons that change from cold, dry winters, to hot and semi-humid summers. Severe thunderstorms are frequent in the summer, and these include wind, thunder and hail. Of course, this state is mostly known as the home of Mount Rushmore National Memorial, a mountainside rock sculpture of Presidents Washington, Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln that was started in 1925 by Gutzon Borglum and later finished by his son, Lincoln Borglum in 1941.
