Fodor's Review

The recalls the prosperity brought to the city in 1902 when two major Chicago meat packers, Armour and Swift, set up plants here to ship meat across the country in refrigerator cars. You can witness a cattle drive here today; cowboys on horses lead a city-owned herd of about a dozen longhorns down East Exchange Avenue every day at 11:30 am and 4 pm, weather permitting. Between their walks, the cattle can be viewed in their pens behind the Livestock Exchange Building.
