  • This is a very historic neighborhood in Chicago. Pulls was a business man who built his own town according to his ideas for people to run his rail car factories. It had everything, schools, shopping, fire stations, heated homes, everything needed. He had behavior expectations for his employees, gave them an education, too care of them as well as he could. It's from the late 1800's! A lot of the original buildings still stand and they are working hard to restore them. At one point the entire neighborhood was set to be torn down until the residents stuff up and daughter to save it, working hard to restore it. First it became a state park... It is now a national park. It was awesome walking through the neighborhood, it was so advanced for it's time, they are doing a great job restoring it and I can't wait to go back in a couple years when they have the hotel restored and move the visitor center into it. Great park, it's a historical treasure for sure. One man trying to change the world for the better.
  • Really neat area and historical site with a lot of information about an important part of the city and America's railroad transportation industry. They've done and continue to do a great job of maintaining this historical landmark and the accompanying grounds. The historical homes and surrounding neighborhood were planned and developed by the Pullman Company to provide its workers a beautiful place to live during the often otherwise harsh working conditions. Over 100yrs later it's beauty is well appreciated!
