In 1893, Chicago held the World’s Columbian Exposition to celebrate the 400th anniversary of Christopher Columbus’s arrival in the New World. The entire expo covered 690 acres of awe-inspiring waterways with lakefront access and emphasized sculpture and architecture. The fair was even illuminated at night, creating a magnificent and picturesque “White City.” The celebration showcased astonishing exhibits of technology, art and music, and featured attractions such as the world’s first Ferris wheel.

A few years before the World's fair, Herman Webster Mudgett, better known as Dr. Henry Howard Holmes, or now more commonly referred to as H. H. Holmes, had taken a job as a pharmacist. Holmes was attractive, charming, and charismatic – all qualities that would help Holmes go unnoticed while operating as an insurance-swindling con artist. It was rumored he eventually assumed control over the Pharmacy by killing the original owner. Holmes procured cadavers to collect on false life insurance claims. He used his fraudulent money to purchase an empty lot to build the three-story World’s Fair Hotel, now known as “Murder Castle.” Some guests would check-in, but not all of his guests would check out.
