We are fans of Erik Larson’s best selling book Devil in the White City, a riveting tale about Chicago’s World’s Columbia Exposition of 1893. We love that The Chicago Architecture Foundation and Chicago’s Finest Tours have a Devil in the White City Book Tour which highlights the history and characters described in this book while featuring the amazing architecture of The Chicago’s World Fair.
The book goes into great detail regarding the politics and architecture behind the building of the exposition while detailing events related to the serial murderer Dr. Henry H. Holmes which was happening at the same time. If you haven’t read this book, it’s a Chicagoan must read, and the tour is fascinating whether you’ve read the book or not.
