    A small city of about 15,700 people, Mitchell is famous for its Corn Palace. The Corn Palace’s unique corn murals attract about 500,000 tourists every year, and for locals, it’s a top destination for sporting events and live performances.

    Nearly 17% of the city’s residents are seniors, and if they need help with daily activities as they age, they can choose between Mitchell’s two assisted living facilities. Like others throughout the state, these assisted living facilities are licensed by the South Dakota Department of Health.
