"Pullman Historical District" Pullman Tip by dlandt
Pullman, Chicago: 4 reviews and 4 photos
Pullman is something of a cross between a lower middle class neighborhood, and a preserved historical district. It is a living neighborhood that was originally a separate city built by the Pullman company. As you walk around you will see that the houses have a striking uniformity to them, because they were built by the company to be a kind of workers paradise. There never were any violent acts commited here during the infamous Pullman strikes.
At the time, the homes here were far superior than anything to be found in Chicago. they had central heating, clean, running water, and all the city grounds cared for by the company.
Walking tours are free and easily available, as is a small museum dedicated to the company and neighborhood.
