RAPID CITY, S.D. (KOTA) - For 74 years Black Hills residents have gathered at Mount Rushmore for an Easter celebration. This year will mark the 75th year of the long-lasting tradition. Eileen Roggenthen a Black Hills history enthusiast says the celebration has not always been a sunrise service, but always returned year after year.
