A lot of us love corn for its sweet and crunchy flavors. But no one loves corn quite like this palace in South Dakota.

The exterior of this large building is made out of corn but somehow ends up looking decent despite it all. If it doesn’t satisfy your corn cravings, have some fun looking around inside the palace. You’ll find all kinds of murals and other roadside oddities to look at and enjoy.

All with the humble corn as the star of the show.
