The Kansas City Live Stock Exchange was the headquarters of the Kansas City Stockyards. It is located at 1600 Gennesse in Kansas City, Missouri, in the West Bottoms. The building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It is owned by Bill Haw.
The building, which began construction in 1909 and was completed in 1911, was the largest livestock exchange building in the world. In 1957, a one-story addition was constructed on the south side of the building for the Golden Ox restaurant which had opened in the building in 1949.
The building has been renovated and currently serves as an office building with numerous business and personal services, including but not limited to, a coffee shop that also serves breakfast and lunch, barber/stylist, a health club including a masseuse, and a U.S. Post Office (the post office closed as of December 2008.)
