The grain merchants; an illustrated history of the Minneapolis Grain Exchange.

Kenney, Dave.

Afton Historical Society Press


215 pages




Kenney, an author of several books on Minnesota history, records the fascinating story of the Minneapolis Grain Exchange, which originally provided a market for most of the grains grown in the upper Midwest. Throughout its 125-year history, its members traded thousands, then millions, then billions of dollars in cash grains and futures. The color illustrations throughout the text show various business leaders, merchants and buildings that participated in this growth.
