We love visiting historic buildings. This one has a great story of the cattle drive and early meat packing days of Armour and Swift. Photos are outstanding, seeing that many cattle in one place and processing onto the rails for shipment east. Walls are covered...More

It is a great thing to understand why the stock yards ever existed. To think they drove the cattle from here. The cowboy is an interesting creature. They make you want to go out and buy a pair of boots!

Gone are the days of past. This live auction is indoors with tv and computer screens. An Auctioneer is rapidly calling. Pretty interesting with an attached museum and various displays.

This building is in awesome shape, restored to its glory, and it is still being used today by current businesses. Walk around the inside of the building hallways and experience the arcades, balconies, woodwork, glass doors, etc. Wonderful.

There is a small museum with lots of good items to view and good information to share. Also a small gift shop with some fun items and great books. The hallways are full of plaques about people of importance, too.

You have to see it all, including the Stockyards and eat there as well. Food is good, art galleries some times treat you with wine and tapas. Christimas time is adorable. A must go place.

This is a great place for real authentic history. A must see for young children to get a real feel of the stockyards.
