Superior Nut & Candy
Superior Nut and Candy is located in the heart of Chicago in the Historic Stockyard Industrial Park. Our location is just one key to our service abilities being centrally located with easy access to major transportation avenues. The "yards" themselves -- now an industrial park -- have become a very different place. But for visitors fascinated in that history, there are traces:
Foremost is the Union Stock Yard Gate, on Exchange Avenue west of Halsted, built of limestone for the yards' opening in 1865. The cattle pens are long gone; only the gate remains. That impressive Independence Hall-like edifice at the Exchange-Halsted corner -- frozen like a pork belly -- was the Live Stock National Bank
South of the bank, demolished in 1999, was the International Amphitheatre, once home to an annual livestock show and rodeo, NBA basketball, concerts -- Elvis, the Beatles, Sinatra and many more -- and five national political conventions. The last, the 1968 Democratic convention that nominated Hubert Humphrey, was marked by demonstrations outside the hall and, most memorably, in Grant Park.
