Herman Webster Mudgett, known by many as HH Holmes, was the infamous serial killer who lured his victims to his Murder Castle during the 1893 World’s Fair in Chicago.

This building, which the man had constructed with a number of secret passages, trapdoors and more, was said to also contain a hotel, though it has been determined a hotel might never have actually been open for business there.
