South Dakota: Mitchell – Corn Palace

Mitchell is home of the world's only Corn Palace. The original version of the Corn Palace was established in 1892 as a place for the community to congregate. As Mitchell grew it outstripped the capacity of the Corn Palace which was subsequently rebuilt, bigger and better, twice more with the current building being completed in 1921. In the 1930's the building was remodeled to capture the essential spirit and decorative features of the first palace, with the minarets and Moorish design elements we see today being added.

South Dakota: Wall – Wall Drug Store

Apparently, there are more than 300 paid for billboards, some located internationally, and a whole load more unofficial billboards.
