As Donna correctly answered, Mitchell is the town famous for the Corn Palace. Turns out we decided to go to De Smet instead. De Smet is the home of Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Little Town on the Prairie. They had lovely exhibits there, including a re-creation of the home that the Ingalls family built there. The kids got to make rope, and corn hust dolls, and a little button and string toy. They also got to go on a wagon ride and visit a one room schoolhouse, and ride a horse. And once again, the less than stellar weather kept the crowds down.
