Visitors from Ontario County to World's Fair -
Columbian Exposition, also called The Chicago World's Fair,
was held in Chicago in 1893, to celebrate the 400th anniversary of
Christopher Columbus' discovery of the New World. The Exposition
covered more than 600 acres, featuring nearly 200 new buildings of
European architecture, canals and lagoons,
and people and cultures from around the world. Over 27 million people
attended the Exposition over the six
months it was open. Its scale and grandeur far exceeded the other world
fairs of the time. Source Wikipedia
