Jeff Dixon, great-grandson of South Dakota’s original state historian Doane Robinson, reads the text of a new historical marker unveiled along Needles Highway on June 28. A number of Dixon family members—descendants of Robinson's daughter Suzanne Robinson Dixon—attended the dedication of the monument that marks the spot where Robinson first got the inspiration that led to the creation of Mt. Rushmore.
