Our History

Built in 1910, the Livestock Exchange Building was seen as a fortress of commerce for Kansas City and the western territory.

With 475 offices, the building housed the Stockyards Company, telegraph offices, banks, restaurants, railroad and packing house representatives, and government agencies. It was the largest livestock exchange building in the world and one of the largest office buildings in Kansas City. The stockyards had become an independent company in 1871 with 13.5 acres. Over time it grew to 207 acres and housed the current Livestock Exchange Building. In 1923 the Kansas City stockyards set a world record for a days’ receipts of cattle, 60,206 head. The handling capacity of the yards was 70,000 cattle, 50,000 hogs, 50,000 sheep, and 5,000 horses and mules.

“This building and its people inspire me each day. I frequently wonder what went on inside the building over a hundred years ago when I see old business names still painted on interior office windows. This building is a KC treasure.”
