In 1893, Chicago hosted the World's Columbian Exposition---a 630-acre international world's fair of extraordinary scope and the subject of a multitude of books and documentaries. The four Southern California counties banded together to create the Southern California World's Fair Association, joining their exhibits in the Columbian Exposition's California Building.
Because Winters' name was with the exhibit, he received "a large correspondence from incredulous and inquiring observers, which he personally answered." Winters went on to display the agricultural wealth of Wintersburg Village at the Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce and at county fairs.
