My goodness, the chemo is adversely affecting you.

While Dakota Weleyan and The World's Only Corn Palace are in the same
town, the name of that town is Mitchell, South Dakota. Mandan is the
name of a town in North Dakota, just west of Bismarck.

Take care -JZ

Nancy Block pointed out that there is also a Corn Palace just off Lawrence in Sunnyvale/Santa
Clara near Central(?). When I wrote back to question this, she said:
> Yep. As Casey Stengel said, you could look it up.

I looked it up, and the Sunnyvale Corn Palace is a farm stand. See this article for info.

The Mitchell SD corn palace is a whole building decorated with murals made of colored
corn kernels. See this cool postcard.

Okay, strictly speaking, they don't have the only business called a
Corn Palace. But they do have something unique.

I understand they have a problem with the local birds eating away
the murals.
