Ha, ha! Had to ponder this for a long time but finally caught on and had a good laugh!

Yeah, there is this one:

Cosmos Mystery Area - A fun-filled Black Hills attraction near Rapid City and Mt. Rushmore!

and IIRC another popular (identical) one in Oregon.

Finally, a place I actually went to!
Return trip from FL, end of summer 1979 headed back to senior year of college in NY.
I still have a dark brown glass sombrero souvenier from the gift shop. Is it an antique yet?

I'm getting homesick. We used to go there before it went thoroughly commercial. It was wonderful to drive out there after a long winter followed by eight weeks of rain. They used to allow tourists to sit in the window seats and pick a book off the shelf. The views were terrific. Seemed like every spring there would be more parking lots and more areas roped off. I also enjoyed the music room and carousal they put in later.

Warning: coffee shop story: Last time I planned a trip to Wisconsin (2005) a beautiful young woman looked over my shoulder to see what I was reading. She was a law student but interested in architecture, said that when I'm in Wisconsin I should visit the House of the Rock and Spring Green.
