A part of Kansas City’s landscape since 1871, the Kansas City Stockyards made their mark originally as the city’s central livestock exchange. Utilizing a premier location along the Kansas River and with access to both the Santa Fe Trail and the Oregon Trail, the stockyards were integral to the livelihood of the city.
Over the years, the Kansas City Stockyards changed hands numerous times. Today, the Stockyards District is a vibrant mix of entertainment venues including galleries, bars, and restaurants. In fact, here are a few worth exploring.
