the Corn Palace & 1880 Town Sooc #37
When we pulled off the interstate to check out the 1880 Town this sign cracked me up. This little town is fenced off behind a gas station, pretty much the only thing at the exit. It has been the set for some movies, or has some of the props from Dances with Wolves. We didn't take the time and spend the money to check it out but just continued on to the World's Only Corn Palace in Mitchell.
It's pretty neat, the murals on the sides of the buildings are all created with grains and such from local fields.
A good portion of them were complete.
But some weren't quite done yet. The black areas are unfinished.
