We learned about this place as a must see spot while traveling through South Dakota for the SD Welcome Center. It is very unique with corn decorating the exterior of the building and making it look like a corn palace of varying types. The exterior...More

This year the topic is South Dakota weather and the various pictures seem to cover just about every weather condition that occurs in SD. These included lightning, tornados, and snow. Great pieces of art.

So lucky to have something that draws people into our community. Great history with a hopping little main street right outside the door. Best popcorn balls in the country! A must stop for all visitors!

I remember this place from 60 years ago, so had to stop by when passing through Mitchell. It is still impressive, but not as much as I remember. It is unique, and worth an hour of your time if you are close by.
