C.C. Gideon was Marilyn’s grandfather who came to the Black Hills in 1918 to supervise the construction of the State Game Lodge. Working alongside Peter Norbeck, he was able to turn vision into reality. The two men laid out both the Needles Highway and Iron Mountain Road. With Norbeck’s encouragement, Gideon designed the historic Pigtail bridges on Iron Mountain Road. After serving the public at the Game Lodge for 27 years, Gideon became the first concessionaire at Mt. Rushmore for another 5 years before retiring in 1955.
