The Prairie Peace Park is making way for a Peace Palace. The 'Amber Waves of Grain' (32,000 wooden cones that depicted the U.S. nuclear arsenal during the Cold War) and other sculptures, signs and exhibits will be replaced by a two-story, 12,000-square-foot building in which Transcendental Meditation and other classes will be taught, according to the Lincoln Journal Star.

The land just off the Crete/Pleasant Dale exit from Interstate 80 is being bought by Global Country of World Peace, which is headquartered in Maharishi Vedic City, Iowa. The town was incorporated in 2001 to accompany the Maharishi University of Management near Fairfield, Iowa. The school and town were developed as centers for Transcendental Meditation, a practice popularized by the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.

Declining attendance over the past two years led to the decision to sell the Peace Park land, said Don Tilley, president of the park organization.
