Your conference attendees can experience Mitchell’s historical and cultural

American, folk art icon on the rolling prairies of South Dakota. The unique
“ear”chitecture of the Corn Palace is decorated each year with thousands of
bushels of corns, grains and native grasses. Cabela’s features museum-like
displays providing wildlife and outdoor educational opportunities. Travel back in time at the Carnegie Resource Center and see the Corn Palace memorabilia from the last 100+ years! Enjoy the life, culture and the arts of pioneers and Native Americans of this region at the Dakota Discovery Museum. Experience a prehistoric dwelling at the Prehistoric Indian Village archeological site where 1,000 years ago semi-nomadic farmers/hunters harvested the first corn in this area.
You can also enjoy strolling through one of the many gift shops and art galleries that
