Devil in the White City

Fri Nov 30 10:15 am to 1:45 pm

Explore the compelling true story told by Erik Larson in his best-selling book, The Devil in the White City about two simultaneous events in Chicago history: the World's Columbian Exposition in 1893 and the emergence of serial murderer Dr. Henry H. Holmes. The tour, conducted by the Chicago Architecture Foundation, stops at the street that was home to Chicago's business and social elite during the Fair, winds past the home of Fair critic Ida B. Wells, highlights the Midway and the site of the Ferris Wheel and stops for a short walking tour of the Fairgrounds in Jackson Park.
