In the old South, cotton was king and Memphis was the center of the cotton universe. The Memphis Cotton Exchange formed in 1874 to serve the interests of cotton growers and dealers in the Mid-South area. The Cotton Exchange Building, completed in 1924, is where prices were set, deals were sealed, and fortunes were made and lost. This Gothic-style building with beautiful arches has been featured in several movies made in Memphis. The building now houses offices and is not open for tours, but you can get a taste of the past at the Unknown Cafe in the basement. An office building without public hours.
