Kansas City Stockyards Digital Collection

The Missouri Valley Special Collections recently added a “Stockyards” digital collection to our website. This digital collection is comprised of photographs, maps, blueprints, and architectural drawings from the Kansas City Stockyards archival collection. Though there is currently only a small portion of the collection digitized, we hope to continue adding to this collection as more items are scanned. For a detailed item level inventory of the collection please see the SC167 Kansas City Stockyards collection finding aid. There are also numerous articles about the Kansas City Stockyards on the local history blog.
