8. The Time Capsule in Mount Rushmore
During the construction of this famous monument, architect Gutzon Borglum wanted to create a Hall of Chronicles inside the cliff face — a secret room where future generations would find the fundamental records of and information about the USA’s history. For this purpose, he excavated a cave behind the head of Abraham Lincoln. Soon after, however, Borglum died, and his plan was not completed. In 1998, more than 50 years after his death, copies of important documents and the memoirs of various presidents were placed inside the unfinished hall, which now serves as a time capsule.

10. Build-Your-Own Log Cabin Kits
All of the logs and material are precut at the company’s facility and then shipped by truck to your location. Each kit comes with everything you need for the build from the sill plate to the roof: logs, cabinets, sinks, flooring, fireplaces, windows, shingles, the list goes on. Like Ikea on a bigger scale… they provide an installation manual for the homeowner or builder who will be erecting the home… Kit prices are downright reasonable compared to top-dollar mountain real estate.
So this is a thing. Found on Curbed.

From October 19 through November 18, 2017, a selection of unpublished contact sheet excerpted from the magazine Paris Match’s archives are being exhibited at Galerie Argentic. “Studying a contact sheet, it’s like doing an autopsy of the artist,” explains Agnès Vergez, Paris Match’s Director of Exhibitions. “Some of them, like William Klein, made a full-fledged art out of it; others, like Henri Cartier Bresson, refused to show them.”
