Carnegie Resource Center

Mitchell, SD

Proud home of the Mitchell Area Historical Society & the Mitchell Area Genealogical Society. Features include changing historical and genealogical exhibits, extensive documents for research, and a permanent collection of Corn Palace memorabilia from 1892 to the present.
The building, once a library, was built in 1903 with funds from Steel magnate Andrew Carnegie. In 1940 the famous Yanktonai Nakota Sioux artist Oscar Howe painted the mural "Sun and Rain Clouds Over Hills" in the dome. From 1949 to 1971 Howe designed the murals made of corn on the Mitchell Corn Palace. The Mitchell Area Historical Society acquired the historic Library in 2006, and with the Mitchell Area Genealogical Society, has been working to preserve the building and its history. The Center houses a permanent collection of Corn Palace memorabilia as well as changing exhibits of Mitchell area history and genealogy.
