The 1893 Chicago World's Columbian Exposition was unrivaled in its grandeur and audacity. On display within its manicured grounds were previously unimaginable technological and cultural marvels. Over the course of its run, the fair would foreshadow the emergence of the modern American city. Come hear the story of the White City and the cast of characters that created the modern world.
