In 1893, W.E. Sullivan visited the Columbian Exposition, where he marveled at the original Ferris Wheel. Like George Washington Gale Ferris, Mr. Sullivan owned a bridge building business – Eli Bridge Company. As he took his first ride on Mr. Ferris’ Wheel, little did he know that his life was about to change forever.

Despite skepticism from his family and the business community, Sullivan remained fascinated by the Wheel and was determined to build one of his own. He later collaborated with machinist James H. Clements and together they began construction of their Wheel on March 23, 1900. This first “Big Eli®” Wheel debuted in Jacksonville, Illinois’ own Central Park on May 23, 1900. The Wheel was a great success and, in 1906, Sullivan incorporated the Eli Bridge Company by taking on capital investors to mass-produce his wheels.
