Mitchell Corn Palace

The exterior and murals of the Mitchell Corn Palace are made completely from thousands of bushels of corn, grain, grasses, wild oats, rye, straw and wheat; they are stripped down and new ones are created in each year in a different theme.

Located in Mitchell, South Dakota the palace was originally established in 1892 at the “Corn Belt Exposition”, a festival where settlers displayed the fruits of their labor along the building exterior as testament to the fertility of South Dakota soil. The third and present building was completed in 1921
