The town of Pullman, the brainchild of George M. Pullman, began as a small community on the far south side of Chicago. In 1879, Pullman, builder of the well-known Pullman Sleeping Car, purchased land just west of Lake Calumet and surrounding the Illinois Central Railroad, to build his model town in 1880. Pullman was the first planned model industrial town, and its center was Pullman’s railroad car business. Employees lived in well-constructed housing on pleasantly landscaped streets, with all the necessary conveniences, including a bank, library, theater, post office, church, parks, and recreational facilities. In fact, Pullman was presented an award for the “World’s Most Perfect Town” in 1896.

About the Author:

Historic Pullman Foundation archivist and author Frank Beberdick, a resident of the Pullman community since 1975, has worked with HPF staff and fellow members of the foundation to compile this fascinating photographic account of the community. Beginning with the birth of George Pullman in 1831, this book chronicles the history of the community up to the present. Photographs gathered from the foundation’s archives show the start of both residential and industrial construction. Most of the book consists of photographs, while the accompanying text provides historical explanations that make the book both entertaining and educational. The Historic Pullman Foundation was established in 1973 to carry on the work of preservation and to become an educational resource of the Pullman Historic District. Today, the Hotel Florence (pictured on cover), the Grand Old Lady of Pullman, continues to be a major attraction for visitors to the community.
