The Field Museum is not the site of the Chicago World's Fair of 1893, the Columbian Exposition.  It is the Museum of Science and Industry in the Hyde Park community at 56-57th Streets and located in Jackson Park (not Grant Park) that was the site of the Fair.  Just to the south and at the rear of the Museum of Science and Industry is the Columbia Basin which flows into east and west branches of the lagoon which surround the Wooded Island.  The Wooded Island and the Osaka Japanese Garden are just two of features designed by Frederick Law Olmsted specifically for the Fair.  To the south of the lagoon and Wooded Island and on the site of the Electricity Building (one of the buildings of the Fair complex) stands the replica of the Statute of the Republic, in honor of the Columbian Exposition.
