A Tale of Two Chicagos: The White City & The Murder Castle of Englewood

- Join us in-person on Wednesday, July 26 @ 5:00pm.


Join us in welcoming back Clarence Goodman for an in-person program that looks back 130 years to one of Chicago's most infamous historical tales. Tune in as we explore Chicago's first World's Fair and America's first serial killer! As Chicago approached a critical time in its history, concentrating on the post-Great Fire rebuilding and reinvention, buildings were being erected to house its first taste of international recognition in the form of the White City, the World's Columbian Exposition. Unbeknownst to all but a few, dark shadows were looming as cast by a small structure in nearby Englewood. The building was the Murder Castle, and the man was Dr. H. H. Holmes. Learn how HH Holmes committed a series of murders in his Englewood castle against the backdrop of the Columbian Exposition of 1893 at this enticing program! Registration for this event is required. For more info, contact Kaitlyn at (708) 748-3731 ext 31.


Registration will open on June 30.
