Pullman was a planned community of the late 1800's, built to house workers of the Pullman Palace Car Company. For a time, this planned and controlled community served a convenient need of the thousands of workers. Over time, however, people questioned the control exerted over the people by "big brother" corporation and labor strife took its' toll on the community. You can learn all about the historic significance of this community prior to our event by visiting the Historic Pullman Foundation Website Link
The Historic Pullman Foundation exists to commemorate this community and protect its' history and legacy. Each year, the community, in cooperation with the foundation, hosts an open house tour of a selection of these historically significant homes.
Our group will meet at 10:30am on Sunday, October 11 at the visitor center to participate in these tours.Please note that the Foundation charges a $17.00 fee to participate in these tours.
Proceeds benefit the foundation.
