White City Digest

Did you know Disney's Epcot and Magic Kingdom could've fit comfortably into the 686-acre World's Columbian Exposition site? It's this scale and magnitude that, along with the Fair's maniacal happenings, keep Chicagoans coming back to an event that expired 120 years ago. The great majority of its buildings were quickly lost to inferno or razed but the Field Museum stores thousands of White City artifacts, many of which go on display Friday through September 2014. WBEZ suggests a republished 1892 travel guide as an accompaniment to the exhibit. [WBEZ, previously]
