玉米皇宫
地方性遗产

想像一个充满彩色壁饰的建筑物。
现在,在同一栋建筑物上,加上全由玉米及其他谷物做成的外壳!这不是一栋虚构的建筑物,它是玉米皇宫。

建于1892的玉米皇宫,座落在南达科他州的米契尔市。通过建筑物的外在壁饰,玉米皇宫旨在戏剧性的展示,南达科他州的农夫的农产品。这些壁饰是由数千浦式耳玉米及其他的壳物、青草制成,如:野生燕麦、黑麦、麦杆及小麦。每年,这些谷物都会被拆下来,然后再换上全新的壁饰。玉米皇宫是一个绝佳的观光景点,也是社区的集会所在地。许多活动都在此举行,而其中最受欢迎的是玉米皇宫乱窜牛仔竞技会。但必须把马匹看紧,以免它们吃掉了这栋建筑物!

 
Imagine a building covered with colorful murals. Now imagine that same building with an exterior made entirely out of corn and other grains! This building exists -- it is the Corn Palace.

Built in 1892 in Mitchell, South Dakota, the Corn Palace was created to dramatically display the products of the harvest of South Dakota's farmers, in murals on the outside of the building. The murals are made from thousands of bushels of corn and other grains and grasses such as wild oats, rye, straw, and wheat. Each year these corn decorations are completely stripped down and entirely new murals are created. The Corn Palace is a great tourist attraction and a meeting place for the community. Many events are held here and the most popular is the Corn Palace Stampede Rodeo. But the horses must be watched carefully so they don't eat the building!
