In News History: Unabomber Arrested

For 17 years, an elusive criminal sent homemade bombs that targeted universities, airlines and computer stores, killing three people and injuring 23 others.

Theodore Kaczynski, also known as the Unabomber, orchestrated these attacks from a small, hand-built cabin in the Montana wilderness. 

The rudimentary home where Kaczynski was arrested on April 3, 1996, was taken into evidence by the FBI and has been on display in the Newseum's FBI exhibit since 2008, where it has fascinated hundreds of thousands of visitors.

Whether or not you've been here to see the cabin in person, there's more to explore online:
