The Corn Palace, Mitchell, South Dakota
The world’s only corn palace was opened in 1892 and today is a folk art icon. Early settlers displayed their bountiful harvest on the building’s exterior to prove the fertility of the soil and to attract more immigrant farmers to settle there. Each year a new decorating theme is chosen and the outside is decorated with rye, oats, sour dock and corn following patterns created by local artists. Inside there are corn husk creations. It’s a fun bit of Americana!
