Facts

  • Tallest building in Chicago from 1885 to 1895; the Masonic Temple took over the position when the clock tower was removed for structural problems.
  • The trading room was 80 feet high, with a floor measuring 161 by 152 feet.
  • Between demolition of this building and completion of its successor on the same site, the Board of Trade occupied a temporary building at 447-511 South Clark Street which was demolished in 1947 when Congress Parkway was widened.
  • Designed by the same architect as Chicago's Water Tower, the building featured a tall clock tower which stood for 10 years at the visual terminus of LaSalle Street.
  • The building stood for 34 years without its tower, until it was demolished for the new Chicago Board of Trade.
