The first commodities exchange in the United States now plays host to an assortment of shops and restaurants.. In Short Philadelphia resident George E. Bartol was so enamored of a Bourse (the word means "place of exchange" in Middle French) that he saw in Hamburg, he decided to build his own. Completed in 1895, the building, with a huge skylit great hall as its centerpiece, housed Philadelphia's stock, grain, and maritime exchanges. Technologically, the building was very ahead of its time--pneumatic tubes allowed for a direct connection between the building and the U.S. Post Office. The Bourse was renovated in the 1980s into its current mall-esque incarnation.
