Detour Destination: Mitchell Corn Palace

Updated: May 6, 2020

As part of the preparation for Grange Revival 2021, notorious road-trippers Chris and Duane Hamp have created a series, which will be updated each month through July 2021, called "Dream it. Do it.: Actively Exploring & Living the Dream."

The series will feature "sites to brake for" while traveling to Grange Revival 2021 in Sturgis, South Dakota from a variety of starting points so anyone attending the event, and making the trip by car, can add to their journey of where the Grange can take them.

In this first edition, we look at Mitchell Corn Palace, rather nearby the Grange Revival site - something you can catch on the way there, during the event or as you head back home.
