Today I learned about Corn Palace in Mitchell South Dakota! The building is a tourist attraction and also a multi use facility including an arena for college and high school basketball. Concerts and shows go through there too! It was originally built to attract folks to Mitchell. The coolest part is that some of the artwork (especially murals outside) IS made out of corn! The palace even has a mascot, Cornelius (he's an ear of corn). I think it'll be on my list of places to go when I'm on that part of the country!
