1893 Columbian Exposition

ferris wheel
WORLD'S FIRST
FERRIS WHEEL

*Extraordinary Displays*

Chicago's 1893 World Columbian Exposition celebrated the 400th anniversary of the "Discovery of America".  The United States intended to show the world that it had become a world class nation.

The Ferris Wheel, an engineering masterpiece, became the symbol of the fair.  Built to rival the 1889 Eiffel Tower. The world's first Ferris wheel was 250 feet in diameter and could carry 2,160 people in its 36 steel cars that held 60 people each. Fifty cents purchased a three revolution ride.  Each revolution took twenty minutes.

The Ferris Wheel was again erected at the 1904 Louisiana Purchase Exposition which was also the site of the first Olympics held in the United States.  After the Exposition the wheel was scrapped.

The Christopher Columbus Museum displays a 1/50 scale model of the wheel and a 1/12 scale model of a car, built by Duane B. Anderson of Columbus, WI.  Ship models include 1/24 scale model of Santa Maria from the Smithsonian, Nina from the National Geographic and Pinta from Spain 1992. Also displayed are 3D views, and a variety of photos, books, drawings and many souvenirs - including Enlarged Photos of all Major Fair Buildings, Poole Bros. Color Lithigraphs of Fair, State and International Buildings, and the last work of John Rogers in 1892; "Watch on the Santa Maria" 1 of 6 existing featuring (3) Captains: Christopher Columbus - Santa Maria; Martin Pinzon-Pinta; Vincente Pinzon - Nina. (Who also discovered the Amazon River in 1497.)
