 The Trans-Mississippi Exposition of 1898 is celebrated with this presentation of rare photographic images. Hailed as a showcase of technology west of the Mississippi River, the exposition was designed to show that life beyond the mighty river was civilized and forward-thinking.
Wells describes the construction of the exposition, the use of the lagoon and the sophisticated buildings at their zenith, and their dismantling.
This presentation is made possible by the Nebraska Humanities Council and the Nebraska Cultural Endowment as part of the NHC Speakers Bureau.
