Join us for a fascinating introduction to the spectacular 1893 World’s Fair, held in Chicago's Jackson Park with landscaping by Frederick Law Olmsted. In this entertaining presentation, author Cindy Angell Keeling will take you on a general tour of the fairgrounds using vintage photographs, maps, and artwork.
Which building had the most ostentatious dome? What in the world is "staff," and why was it important to the Fair? Which concession featured a donkey ride up a mountain? Travel back in time with Cindy to find out. Bring your enthusiasm and a sense of wonder.
The event is free and open to the public.
