The expositions of 1873 and 1874 continued the pattern of growth with acreage of exhibit space -- especially for machinery -- increasing dramatically.   A new attraction was a music pavillion within the main exposition hall.

Alfred T. Goshorn, director of the first three expositions, was tapped to serve again in 1873, but instead was summoned to Philadelphia to serve as Director-General of the United States Centennial Exposition.
