One of the most iconic landmarks in the city of Chicago, the Chicago Board of Trade towers above West Jackson Boulevard. Constructed in 1930 by Holabird and Root, and fully renovated in 2006 for $20 million, this art deco building features Ceres, the Roman goddess of agriculture and fertility, on the top of the roof as a symbol of the Board’s functions. All the renovations were done to restore the building to its original splendor. When it was impossible to recreate an original element, restorers substituted a new one in a style that matched the original. Make this a stop on your tour of Chicago, especially if you love historic buildings.
