We are so glad you’re here.

Mitchell is best known as the home of the World’s Only Corn Palace, yet many don’t realize the Palace truly stands for enterprise, pride and community. This icon of innovation has stood the test of time, continually changing its colors, architecture, and community purpose as the city itself has grown and changed. This year is no exception, as the Corn Palace completed a renovation project to create an even better experience for our visitors.

While in Mitchell, don’t miss our other great attractions. The Prehistoric Indian Village, Dakota Discovery Museum, McGovern Legacy Museum, and Carnegie Resource Center await you with stories to tell. Be sure to visit our unique specialty shops. Outdoor enthusiasts will find a broad array of hunting, fishing, golf, bike trails, and camping opportunities, including those along the shores of Lake Mitchell. Mitchell is a unique and surprising place, home to over 15,000 friendly folks who believe in hard work, growth, community and family. We sit outside of expectations as a home to a university, a technical institute, more than 65 medical providers, state-of-the-art technology, award-winning public education, an active young professionals group, and hundreds of family-owned businesses. We strive to outthink, outproduce and outperform to make this an outstanding community for all.

NEW CORN PALACE DESIGN RECALLS THE PAST Although the World’s Only Corn Palace dates back to 1892, it transforms itself each fall ­— with real corn.

Some 275,000 colorful ears or corn 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, but not here. 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. Local artist Cherie Ramsdell composes new murals. Bundles of ryegrass and sour dock, a hearty prairie plant, are stapled to the frames.

The first Mitchell Corn Palace was part of a late 19th century race by farming communities to make names for themselves, promote their products and draw curious visitors. Aberdeen had the Grain Palace, Rapid City the Alfalfa Palace. Rod Evans, who wrote “Palaces on the Prairie,” found records of 34 palaces in 24 towns across the Midwest. All are gone, except for the World’s Only Corn Palace in Mitchell.

Corn Palace


A cure for stir-crazy kids

After spending time in the car, kids need to let off a little steam. There’s a great place at the World’s Only Corn Palace where they can do just that. The Corn Palace Education Center is part fun zone and part corn museum. It’s next to the Corn Palace balcony. Admission is free. “The idea is to get kids more involved,” said Scott Schmidt, Corn Palace Director. Young visitors will likely find a sandbox of corn kernels instead of sand, kid-sized tractors to drive, and perhaps an indoor corn maze. In another part of the Corn Palace, kids will find a combine they can pretend they are driving and a tractor stationed inside the lobby. *Open Summer Season 604 N.

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 people who lived on this site 1,100 years ago.

As a National Historic Landmark, it has been called one of the most significant archeological sites of the Northern Great Plains. Boehnen Memorial Museum Inside the Boehnen Memorial Museum, you will see a reconstructed earthen lodge and some of the 1.5 million artifacts that have been recovered. A live-interactive excavation site, exhibits, and children’s activities are also available. Children can dig for a free arrowhead and watch a demonstration on how to throw a spear using an atlatl. Parents can shop some of the finest Native American items such as indigenous and regional art, jewelry and pottery books. Thomsen Center Archeodome A new 2017 exhibit in the Archeodome showcases some of the artifacts that have been excavated since 2011. Also, in summer you can watch as the students from the University of Exeter, England, excavate more items inside the Archeodome.

IN THE STORY OF THE GREAT PLAINS With the premiere regional collection of art and artifacts, Dakota Discovery Museum offers a way to immerse yourself in the story of the Great Plains of South Dakota.

What is it like to sit inside a tipi? How did whole families live in a homesteader’s claim shanty? When did glass beads appear on the Plains? Learn about Native Americans and the Plains culture that flourished before European settlers arrived. Art and artifacts come together at Dakota Discovery Museum to tell the story of the rich culture of the Plains tribal groups and settlers alike. Dakota Discovery tells the story like no other - hunting, fur trapping and trading, farming, ranching, mining, and religious freedom.

Learn about the early settlers, the impact of the fur trade, and the Gold Rush.

Experience the Dimock Depot by stepping through the doors and back in time to the golden age of railroad on the Great Plains. Rich and poor alike came to the Plains to build new lives.

MCGOVERN LIBRARY It’s fitting that McGovern Library is on the campus of Dakota Wesleyan University. Before the author and activist served in the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate, he was a student and later a professor at the university. Sen. McGovern was the Democratic presidential nominee in 1972. He lost to incumbent Richard Nixon in an emotionally charged era remembered for the Vietnam War, the Watergate scandal and Nixon’s resignation in 1974.

also made less public, more far-reaching contributions. He is perhaps best remembered for his commitment to ending world hunger, a cause commemorated at the museum. His legacy of leadership lives on through the McGovern Center for Leadership & Public Service at Dakota Wesleyan University. The library archives and collections include McGovern memorabilia, documents, photographs, and the Senator’s personal book collection. McGovern Library 1201 McGovern Avenue 605-995-2600 n Hours: Hours follow DWU Campus Schedule; please call ahead for groups. n Admission: FREE

The McGovern’s Museum displays many exhibits that tell the story of McGovern’s life as a World War II bomber pilot, college professor, Democratic organizer, U.S. Representative and Senator, director of Food for Peace under President John F. Kennedy, and ambassador to the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization in Rome. In 2001, he was appointed the first U.N. global ambassador on hunger. Many of the stories are told in audio and video displays narrated by McGovern himself. The senator died in 2012.

How many murals are on the side of the newly renovated Corn Palace?

An unapologetic liberal and staunch opponent to the Vietnam War, McGovern

When was the current Corn Palace built?



While you are on the Dakota Wesleyan University campus, stop by the McGovern Library right across the street from the Dakota Discovery Museum. Just inside the door is the McGovern Legacy Museum that looks at the career of hometown hero, Sen. George McGovern.

Howe, born on the Crow Creek Reservation in 1915, developed a distinctive painting style that continues to influence Native American artists today. His early work reflected traditional representational Native American styles. His later work is more abstract. For years, Howe designed the corn murals of the World’s Only Corn Palace. Today the Oscar Howe Art Gallery on the second floor of the Corn Palace displays his work. His 1940 mural, “Sun and Rain Clouds Over Hills,” in the dome of the Carnegie Resource Center, is one of his most wellknown pieces. The former Carnegie Library was constructed in 1903 with funds from steel tycoon Andrew Carnegie. Today the Carnegie Resource Center is home to the Mitchell Area Historical Society and the Mitchell Area Genealogical Society.

HOP ON YOUR BIKE AND EXPLORE MITCHELL Mitchell might be known as the home of the World’s Only Corn Palace, but another name might be appropriate as well: Bicycle Town USA. Whether you love mountain bikes, street bikes or cruisers, you will have plenty of space for your two-wheeled pursuits.


Lake Mitchell just north of the city has all kinds of outdoor recreation opportunities such as hiking, biking, fishing, boating, golf and camping. You’ll find 8 miles of off-road hiking and biking trails in the Kiwanis Woodlot Park along the lake’s shore. You’ll be pedaling through deep stands of hardwoods and evergreens. Follow the signs to the Mitchell Prehistoric Indian Village. Pump Track The Kiwanis Woodlot Park Pump Track, a continuous loop dirt trail with lots of berms and rollers, is a good place to improve your cycling skills. Use the downhill momentum on the backside of the rollers to propel you into the next roller. If you do it right, pedaling is minimal.

2017-2018 Mitchell Community & Visitor Guide n

Tour de Corn Each year the Palace City Pedalers put on the Tour de Corn, a family-friendly bicycling event for all skill levels. This year’s Tour De Corn is set for Aug. 18 to 20.

6. Historic Main Street The vitality and variety of Mitchell’s center will be apparent when you step out of the car. Explore the shops, boutiques, antique stores and restaurants, all a short walk from the Corn Palace. (Suggested time, 2 hours; admission free.)

Louis and Mary Beckwith, cofounder of the very first Corn Palace in 1892.

2. Dakota Discovery Museum & McGovern Center Explore the cultures that have called this region home -- Native Americans, homesteaders and merchants. The 1886 Beckwith Home, a restored Victorian home, is a gem. (Suggested time, 1-1/2 hours; admission $3 to $7.)

THE GREAT OUTDOORS ARE JUST OUTSIDE MITCHELL 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.

Providing WORLD CLASS pheasant hunting for over 40 years.

BOOK YOUR HUNT TODAY! (605) 996-1120 P.O. Box 10, Mitchell, SD


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. A number of locally owned sporting good stores cater yearround to hunting, archery, and fishing enthusiasts. In addition, Cabela’s has an 80,000-square-foot retail outlet in Mitchell that is part store, part wildlife museum and part tourist attraction. The aquarium features living lunkers such as trout, walleye and bass. The soaring back wall is a “mountain” adorned with realistic animal mounts, from bighorn sheep and mountain goats to mountain lions, bears, moose and elk. Many of the mounts were created by Hellman’s Taxidermy, the renowned Mitchell taxidermy shop located in Mitchell. In addition to over 1,000 hotel rooms in the Mitchell area, it’s easy to find a relaxing hunting lodge or bed & breakfast to meet your needs after a long hunt. When you’re ready to come inside, enjoy a meal at one of our local restaurants. Mitchell also houses sports bars, coffee shops and retail stores.
