In a city of skyscrapers, the Chicago Board of Trade Building stands out. Its history dates back to 1821, though the structure standing today was erected in 1930. Built for the Chicago Board of Trade, today it still serves as a center of Chicago’s financial district as the trading venue for the derivatives exchange. It stood at the tallest building in Chicago for many years. Today it remains a gateway to the city’s financial district.

The traditional art deco architecture draws tourists to the Chicago Board of Trade Building. A three-story statue of Ceres, the goddess of agriculture, stands atop the building on a copper pyramid, drawing visitors from all over the city to see the exquisite craftsmanship. The 6,500 pound Ceres represents the time when agriculture ruled Chicago. The 12-story building has a 19,000 square foot trading floor. Statues adorn the building, each of which tells a different story of the type of work that goes on inside.

Architecture of Money and Power: Chicago Financial District Walking Tour

Discover opulent architecture of Chicago's financial district and hear secret stories of the rich and powerful Architecture on this financial district walking tour will range from sleek Art Deco to glittering post-modern, with buildings constructed from the late 1800s into more recent times. We also venture to the “back door” of the Board of Trade.
