The Corn Palace.
This extraordinary building was erected in 1892 to encourage people
to settle in the area. It has since been rebuilt several times and is now
a multi-purpose facility and sports arena as well as a tourist
attraction. The exterior of the building is covered with murals made
from corn which are replaced and redesigned each year - at
considerable expense - with a new theme. At the end of August each
year there is a Corn Palace Festival in the city, and other annual
events held in the building include the Corn Palace Stampede Rodeo
and the Corn Palace Polka Festival.

Mitchell, South Dakota, Corn Palace
"This building is redecorated annually at a cost of $10,000 in natural
colored grains and grasses. The annual festival is held the last week
in September but the building is open FREE the year around. It is the
most outstanding exhibit of nature's wonderful colors blended into
interesting designs and pictures by skilled decorators."
