Mitchell City Hall Gets Historic Designation

MITCHELL – Mitchell’s City Hall is now on the National Register of Historic Places, despite the objections of local officials who are considering changes to the structure.

The Daily Republic reports that the building was placed on the list this week. State historical officials earlier had requested the move, over the objections of the Mitchell City Council.

Officials are planning a new city hall, and the current structure could be remodeled and made a part of the adjacent Corn Palace or even demolished. Council members worry that the historic designation might hamper those plans.

National Register historian Roger Reed says that could only happen if federal dollars are used for remodeling or demolition – something Mayor Ken Tracy says won’t happen.
