Corn Palace Restoration Project Approved By Historic Preservation Commission

MITCHELL, S.D. (AP) — Mitchell’s Historic Preservation Commission has unanimously endorsed a renovation plan for the Corn Palace tourist attraction.

The matter now goes to the South Dakota State Historic Preservation Office for its review.

Corn Palace Director Mark Schilling says the city does not need the state office’s approval to go forward with the $7 million project, but disapproval by the state office could make the project more difficult.

Schilling says the Corn Palace is a contributing structure to Mitchell’s Historic Commercial District, which is on the National Register of Historic Places. The district’s listing is what required the review process.

About 200,000 tourists visit the attraction each year.
