Chicago’s Columbian Exposition in 1893 was meticulously designed to highlight the marvels of the day and, most importantly, to showcase just how far America had come in the mere 400 years since its settling. But among the beautiful facades of the White City lurked a monster. In this episode, Jen will tell you all about the fair, its planning, construction and, of course, one of the most notorious serial killer’s in American history: H.H. Holmes.
