Corn Palace is getting a facelift

Witness the historic transformation

The World’s Only Corn Palace is scheduled for some cosmetic surgery this year, but summer visitors need not worry. The colorful onion domes and elaborately assembled corn murals will be as iconic as always. Inside, the corn mosaic auditorium will be open to the public, and additional exhibits will make appearances throughout construction.

Although the Corn Palace dates back to 1892,

Lots of corn -- 275,000 colorful ears are carefully sliced and nailed into place on the murals that adorn the building. It’s all done by hand, a folk art form that is all but lost -- except at the World’s Only Corn Palace. The process begins early; each spring, local farmers plant 12 different colors of corn in carefully separated plots to ensure plants don’t cross-pollinate and dilute the purity of the colors. At the same time, local artist Cherie Ramsdell begins composing new murals. To create the decorative frames

which is nailed into place on the walls of the palace. Then the crew goes to work: colored ears of corn are carefully sawn in half, trimmed, and nailed to the paper to create the variegated images for which the Corn Palace is famous. The 2014 theme is “Remember When,” and the murals include depictions of horsedrawn carts, a farmer aboard a tractor, the evolution of the windmill, drive-in movies, early telephones, and a soda fountain. The 2015 murals, which will be placed in Fall 2014, will celebrate a new theme.

Mitchell Prehistoric Indian Village More than a century after its 1910 discovery by a student from Dakota Wesleyan University, the Mitchell Prehistoric Indian Village is still revealing new clues about the lives of the Northern Plains’ ancient inhabitants. Still an active dig, the village on the shore of Lake Mitchell is the only archeological site in South Dakota that is open to the public.

The Great Outdoors Are Just Outside Mitchell

Retailers cater to hunters, fishermen, hikers and campers


South Dakota’s love of hunting, fishing and the outdoors is apparent in Mitchell. In addition to great outdoor opportunities just outside of town, the city has a number of businesses geared toward hunting and fishing. The plains of eastern South Dakota are home to one of the richest ringneck pheasant populations in North America. Bird hunters from across the United States flock to the Mitchell area for pheasant hunting. Guided and youth hunts make Mitchell a great place for a yearly hunt. Our nation’s first president should be thanked for making South Dakota one of the top pheasant harvest states. George Washington is credited with being the first to bring pheasants

Resident and nonresident small game licenses can be purchased online with a credit card or from a local licensed outlet. South Dakota residents need an annual small game, one-day small game, youth small game, combination or junior combination license to hunt pheasants. nonresident small-game license.
