You can take a trip to the 1902 Livestock Exchange Building, once known as "The Wall Street Of The West" due to all the frenzy of activity that occurred in the Stockyards. Here you can wander around the Historical Society Museum which is a fascinating look into the Stockyards past.
Perhaps your inner Southern Belle or Gunslinger wants to come out? Well then why didn't ya say so!? The Jersey Lilly Photo Parlor will take you back to the ye old days of the Old West, where you and your family can dress up in authentic costumes. You can walk the walk, but can you talk the talk?
