Mount Roosevelt / Friendship Tower
Not every friendship gets its own tower, but two Wild West legends made their own tribute rules. A longtime friendship between Seth Bullock and Theodore Roosevelt is immortalized at the Mt. Roosevelt Memorial, also known as “The Friendship Tower.” When Roosevelt died in 1919, Bullock arranged for the erection of the “Friendship Tower” as a memorial to his friend. Bullock died only months after the tower’s dedication, but he had two final requests before his death: He wanted his tombstone to feature only one word (“Pioneer”), and he wanted his grave to be high enough on the hill of Mount Moriah Cemetery to have a clear view of Mount Roosevelt. Visitors can take a short hike to the tower before ascending a few stairs to experience a stunning panoramic view of the Black Hills. Picnic and restroom facilities are available along the way, and educational plates will give you a history of the strong platonic connection Roosevelt once referred to Bullock as “a true Westerner, the finest type of frontiersman.”
