Crafted from Corn

The World's only Corn Palace was a marketing tool to put small town SD on the map. It worked, cause now it hosts 1/2 million visitors a year. Not bad for a city in a state that boasts just over 600,000 residents state-wide!


All of these murals are created from corn and grasses. The detail is amazing.

The outside of the Palace is re-done every.single.year. Inside are pictures showing the last 100 years of corn creativity.
The emphasise on "only" cracks me up =)!

WE never made it to the corn palace while we lived in SD...thought we might in August when we drove up to ND, didn't make it then, either!
