The Kansas City Board of Trade was first assembled in 1869. It quickly outgrew its original location in the West Bottoms and then the River Market and in 1888 moved to a magnificent building at 8th and Wyandotte designed by renowned architects Burnham and Root. By the roaring twenties the KC Board of Trade had once again outgrown these iconic digs and in 1925 moved to 10th and Wyandotte. A new landmark building had been recently constructed at this location by Kansas City entrepreneur and real estate investor, Joseph A. Bruening. Their new home was a 14-story, highly embellished commercial building, characterized by colossal pilasters, triglyphs and medallions. During the time of its construction, it was hailed as “a monument to the phenomenal growth of the Southwest as the world’s greatest grain empire”, and became the largest grain exchange in the world. The Board of Trade ultimately moved to the corner of 48th and Main streets in the Plaza District in 1966.
