Wydown Skinker Neighborhood
Wydown Skinker is bounded by the City limits on the West, Forsyth Boulevard on the North, Forest Park (Skinker Blvd.) on the East, and Clayton Road on the South.
All of Wydown-Skinker was part of the grounds of the 1904 Louisiana Purchase Exposition (the World’s Fair). Within this area were a large Ferris Wheel, part of which was recently excavated in an archaeological exploration, and the complex that housed the Filipino Igorot tribes members brought for “display” as representatives of a new American colony.
