Chicago Board of Trade
- 141 W Jackson Blvd
Lonely Planet review for Chicago Board of Trade
The Board of Trade is a 1930 art deco gem. Inside, manic traders swap futures and options – a mysterious process that has something to do with corn. Or maybe it’s wheat. A small visitors center tries to explain it. Or just stay outside and gaze up at the giant statue of Ceres, the goddess of agriculture, that tops the building.
