In 1876, the United States Centennial was celebrated in West Fairmount Park.

This is a Laurel Hill sign.

The greatest building in the world!
 

 

Ten million people visited 190 buildings spread out over 285 acres of Fairmount Park.  The breadth and innovation of the American exhibits in energy and manufacturing elevated the United States to prominence as a global leader in technological development.
