Have any of you heard of the Hall of Records? It is reportedly behind Mt Rushmore. There is a 70ft tunnel to a titanium vault and inside are 16 porcelain panels with key texts like the Constitution, The Declaration of Independance, and the history of the United States of America.

It was made as a time capsule if we do indeed ever destroy ourselves and leave our distant descendants information about themselves.

The only Hall of Records that I have heard about is the one that is supposedly underneath the Sphinx. It is possibly information on gold discs about Atlantis or something like that. Do you have any links that talk about this Hall of Records behind Mt. Rushmore?

I originally got the information from Maxim magazine. But searching google I found these links for you.

Well, I read the links and the first one mentions this Hall of Records, but it says there wasn't enough $ for it. This was taken from the first link:

Borglum wanted also to establish a Hall of Records to capture the important documents describing the history of the memorial, its purpose and the philosophy of our government as contained in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, but Congress approved funds solely for the carving of the presidential figures. It was only in 1998 that Borglum's dream was fulfilled, on a much less grand scale, with the placing of 16 explanatory panels in the vault in the unfinished Hall.

The second link makes no mention of the Hall of Records. It sounds like it was no big deal and no mention of a titanium vault. It was unfinshed as well. What was the month and year of the Maxim magazine?

Wasnt this in Richie Rich the movie? Where the vault was behind the "Mount Richmore"

The month of July 2004. This a small exert from the second link: Borglum envisioned four U.S. presidents beside an entablature inscribed with a brief history of the country. In a separate wall behind the carved figures the Hall of Records would preserve national documents and artifacts.

Do a search in google using: hall of records mt rushmore .....should have more links.

I found this and hope it helps,
"But work on the Hall of Records, a time-capsule-like vault to hold historic records situated on the back of Rushmore, was stopped not because of the dangers of kicking up so much dust in an enclosed space, but because of lack of funds."

why would they choose mount rushmore?

Well its not like there keeping UFOs or nukes in there(to the best of my knowledge). I guess its one of those lets make a monument to our history things. When it was built there was no threat of it getting nuked.

I watched a documentary on the mountain's construction once on the History channel, and it briefly mentioned the hall of records, but it was said that lack of funds stopped contruction like halfway through it. They may have added the vault recently in an attempt to finish the half-made tunnel.

Picture is here:

Hall of Records
This large carved hall behind Mt. Rushmore is little-known, and was left uncompleted when work ceased on the mountain in 1941. The chamber was originally conceived to be a repository for records of our civilization, country, and the story of Mt. Rushmore. On Aug. 9, 1998, this idea was finally brought to fruition when a special box containing the history of Mt. Rushmore and our country was entombed in the granite floor of the chamber. For more info and photos on this fascinating story, please contact Dakota Photographic.

Can you tell me where you read or heard about the information being stored on gold discs? I would send you a message, but I haven't gotten the 20 posts yet.

Probably not even a 'time capsule' or 'hall of records' probably juts a storeroom for all the old stuff they no longer need, like the 'Contstitution' and the Declaration of Independance.

Out of sight out of mind right?
