The 1984 World's Fair in New Orleans, Louisiana.   The exposition has the dubious honor of being the only exposition to declare bankruptcy during it's run.   There has not been a World's Fair in the United States since.

"Construction of the Louisiana Superdome began in 1971. It was finally finished behind schedule in August 1975, 7 months after Super Bowl IX had been scheduled to be played in it. The final cost of building the Superdome came to $ 165 million, almost 4 times the initial budget. There was some controversy surrounding the building of the Dome on the site of the former Girod Street Cemetary, with some even going as far as labeling the Dome as permanently haunted."
