Central to the redevelopment of the National Western Center, the Legacy Building, designed by Tryba Architects, will be the Western Stock Show Association’s new world headquarters. The building engages the public, visitors, members, and employees in the active life of the campus and will be a gathering place, gallery, and a watering hole for friends, cowboys and art lovers alike. The architectural language and materiality of the building reflect the culture and heritage of the West, serving as a home for all members of the National Western family.

Distinctive outdoor terraces will offer views of the National Western Center grounds, the river, the Denver skyline, and the Rocky Mountains beyond. The Club will be a unique space of Western hospitality, seating up to 700 people, with views into the Sue Anschutz-Rodgers Livestock Center arena. The Legacy Saloon, designed by Roth Sheppard Architects as a turn of the century watering hole, will open to everyone year-round. The Wold Family Heritage Center and Katherine and J. Robert Wilson Art Gallery will display the historic National Western archives and art collection, respectively.

Construction on the 117,000 square foot facility commenced in February 2024, and is slated to be open for the 2026 Stock Show.
