the devil in the white city

Imitated by many, this is the original tour created by Chicago Hauntings in 2004, inspired by the phenomenonal best seller, "The Devil and the White City," Erik Larson's brilliant look at the minds behind the best and worst achievements of Victorian Chicago.  On this tour, we’ll travel through Prairie Avenue - 
home to Chicago's Victorian-era rich and famous, visit the former World’s Fairgrounds in Jackson Park, and—yes— the site of the notorious "murder castle" of horrific serial killer H. H. Holmes.  

Wear comfortable shoes and warm clothing, and bring a poncho or umbrella (in case of rain) for our walk through the former fairgrounds of Jackson Park. Walking is minimal.  

Public tours select Saturdays and Sundays.

Departs the Congress Hotel Lobby, 520 S. Michigan Avenue.
