South Dakota's Corn Palace by Joan Devine
By Joan Devine
  

1     There are many things South Dakota has that other states have as well. South Dakota has railroads and towns and bridges. South Dakota has cows and farms. One thing South Dakota has that no other state has is a Corn Palace in Mitchell.
 
2     The Corn Palace is a building that has pictures made of corn on the outside. Corn is cut in half then stapled to the building. Workers use lots of different colors of corn to make the pictures.
 
3     Corn isn't the only crop they use. They use wild oats, wheat, grain, and grasses in making the pictures. Every year the old pictures are taken apart, and new ones are put together on the outside walls. Each year a different subject or theme is chosen.
