Chicago Board of Trade hotels
Chicago Board of Trade
No visit to Chicago, IL would be complete without a tour of La Salle Street, or as it is referred to locally, the Loop, home of a financial and architectural hub second only to New York City. The most outstanding building is The Chicago Board of Trade, famous not only for its Art Deco architecture, designed by Holabird & Root in 1940, but also as the oldest commodities exchange trading floor. Unfortunately, since September 11 2001,the building is not open to the general public, but guided tours of the inside of the Chicago Board of Trade are available.
- The Chicago Board of Trade building is a National Historic Landmark. Towering over the entrance is a massive clock and a carving of two figures: one a farmer holding wheat, and one a Native American holding corn. A statue of Ceres, the Roman goddess of agriculture is faceless because, sculptor John H. Storrs, believed no other building would be tall enough for the face to be clearly seen.
- Hungry? Don’t miss Ceres café, world famous for its fish sandwiches and soup.
- Witness the chaos of the trading floor from the overhead observation gallery at this Chicago, IL institution.
The Chicago Board of Trade is located at 141 W. Jackson Boulevard, Chicago, IL 60604. You can only gain access to the interior of the building through a guided tour with the Chicago Architectural Foundation. This tour is limited to 20 people so advance reservations are highly recommended. Security screenings much like the airport are required for entrance. The cost is $10 USD for a one hour tour. Many other exterior tours are available of the historic buildings of the Loop including a river cruise, bus tours and Segway tours.
