In 1881, the International Cotton Exposition was held in Atlanta. The “World’s Fair” detailed the many efforts that had been made in rebuilding the city since wartime, and exposed the advancements in agriculture made during the last few years.
The fair was conveniently accessed by way of a short 2.5 mile extension of the Western & Atlantic Railway from its Atlanta terminal.
