The World’s Columbian Exposition, as the great fair would be called, was organized on April 9, 1890. On the 25th, Congress awarded the burgeoning city of Chicago the honor of hosting this event in 1892, beating out New York City, St. Louis and Washington, D.C. The Windy City selected an undeveloped lakefront property of 686 acres on which to build the exposition’s landscape and structures. Today known as Jackson Park, this site overlooks vast Lake Michigan.
