Historic Pullman Foundation

Historic Pullman Foundation Since 1973, the 501(c)(3) not for profit Historic Pullman Foundation has provided for preservation, restoration, education and research activities in the Pullman Historic Landmark District - now the Pullman National Monument.
(74)

The Town of Pullman, IL was one of the nation's first planned industrial communities, built in 1881 by George M. Pullman, President of Pullman's Palace Car Company. He decided to develop a model community, a total environment, superior to that available to the working class elsewhere. By so doing, he hoped to avoid strikes, attract the most skilled workers and attain greater productivity as a result of the better health, environment and spirit of his employees. Today, Pullman is a City of Chicago, State of Ilinois and National Historic Landmark District and a strong, historic community with a focus on preserving its heritage. About the Historic Pullman Foundation

Established in 1973 as a not-for-profit 501(c)(3), the Foundation serves as a vehicle to acquire and restore important public buildings within the Pullman Historic District; to develop and provide educational programs and tours; and to conduct research and long range community planning to facilitate the continuing preservation and restoration of the Pullman Historic District. The Foundation furthers its mission with a dedicated group of volunteers, who provide tours and greet the thousands of visitors who come through our Historic Pullman Visitor Center each year; staff, who provide critical administrative services; and Board of Directors, who help assure long range strategic and short term administrative goals are realized.

The Elizabeth Morse Charitable Trust awarded the Historic Pullman Foundation a grant to strengthen HPF’s fundraising and communications efforts. The capacity-building grant comes as HPF formalizes its role as Pullman National Monument’s (PNM) “friends organization.” The partnership with National Park Service became official on February 19, 2021.
The Trust’s support will enable HPF to address three key goals outlined in its strategic plan.
+ Increase revenue to ensure that HPF and PNM have the funding they need to support their future priorities.
+ Enhance visibility so that Chicago’s only national park is well known in the Chicago region and beyond; and HPF is known as the vehicle to support it.
+ Partner with PNM to ensure that it is an accessible and welcoming place where visitors discover and understand the relevance of the many stories of Pullman.
“We are honored to receive this grant,” said HPF President, Joseph Szabo. “The Trust’s generous support is significant as we expand our mission to create opportunities for all people to experience and understand the continuing American story that is Pullman."

Dear Senators Durbin and Duckworth and Congresswoman Kelly,

The Historic Pullman Foundation's Friends and Members strongly support Chicago’s only national park – Pullman National Monument. We thank you for your continued support of Pullman and of all our national parks and especially thank you for introducing bills (S 2896 and HR 5420) that rename Pullman to “Pullman National Historical Park,” the designation we were all working together to create in 2014.

The bill contains all the provisions from the original legislation designed to help the National Park Service work more closely with partners in Pullman on behalf of historic preservation. Renaming Pullman to be a National Historical Park will more accurately describe what visitors come to experience – a part of our history that honors uniquely American stories, including the role of railroads in America’s industrial past, the formation of the first African-American labor union, and development of the country’s first model industrial town.

By "liking" this post we express our support to move this bill into law during the 116th Congress.

It's still a good time to visit to Pullman!

On exhibit today for the first time is a scale model of the Town of Pullman. The model is constructed from documentation circa 1893, at a scale of 1:100 and includes the majority of the industrial structures located between 107th Street on the north and 112th Street on the south on lands which are about 1/3 of the total land area developed by the Pullman Land Association. The industrial structures closely replicate the original buildings by using 3D modeling. The model has been prepared for the National Park Service by the Historic Pullman Foundation, and will be used as an interpretive tool.
Special thanks to Al White and Alexis Gahan-Lopez for their work on the component parts and to a team of volunteers who participated in the assembly.

National A. Philip Randolph Pullman Porter Museum

National A. Philip Randolph Pullman Porter Museum

On June 18, 1941, A. Philip Randolph and others were invited to meet with President F. Roosevelt, who asked them to call off the first planned "March on Washington for jobs and equal participation in National Defense Industry". Randolph refused unless there was a change in legislation before the end of the month. As a result of Mr. Randolph’s dedication, and commitment to that cause — with the aid of Mrs. Eleanor who unknown to most was a dedicated Ally to Randolph, who believed in fairness without color—President Roosevelt her husband, signed Executive Order 8802, which banned all discriminatory practices by government contractors in the armed forces.

Randolph’s refusal to accept the discriminatory practices led to the organizing of the first March on Washington in 1941. And although it was called off because the President met their demands, that effort became the template for what would become the 1963 March on Washington that changed America.

Had a great time today with Curious City co-hosting a Biketropolis Graceland Cemetery cycling tour.

MY STUDENTS PAINTED A MURAL ABOUT PULLMAN HISTORY IN PILLMAN SCHOOL.
WHY THE WORK ON CHANGE IN CHICAGO GOVERNMENT HAS JUST BEGUN To bring some sobering reality to the hip-hop euphoria of an Andre Vasquez (formerly the hip-hop artist know as Prime) achieving Tuesday what Rhymefest (aka Che Smith) narrowly came chose to achieving four years ago in upsetting a thoroughly amoral Democratic machine born in hateration against our urban fine arts community, Unkel Mawk wishes to throw some sobering science into the game: *In a legendary 1969 speech at Olivet Baptist Church on Chicago’s Low End, or Near South Side, some weeks before his assassination. Chairman Fred Hampton of the Illinois Black Panther Party observed that having black folk in high office doesn’t assure that they’ll innately look after the interests of the vast majority of chaka zulu brothers and sisters. He illustrated with several examples on shore and off-shore, the Nkrumahs and Duvaliers among the example he cited. Chairman Fred posthumously evolved into a prophet after Harold died and his legislative crew were left to pursue their own self-centered and self-serving paths in public service. See excerpy at https://www.historyisaweapon.com/defcon1/fhamptonspeech.html. Likewise, having folk revered in elected office revered and embraced in hip-hop doesn’t assure that they’ll innate look after the interests of the vast majority of hip-hopheads as voters, taxpayers and businessfolk. To wit, 1) Detroit’s most disgraced former mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, identified himself as the Hip-Hop Mayor without doing a blasted thing for heads in the Motor City, is begging the Feds. With hat in hand to reduce his 28-year sentence on multiple corruption charges; 2) At the time of the 1996 Democratic National Hip-Hop Convention at the United Center—when Billary Clinton was bashing hip-hop indirectly from the convention floor, Philly slumlady and feminist Democratic Party opportunist Dolores Tucker had bewitched a clueless U.S. Sen. Carol Moseley-Braun (D-Chicago) into backing a most predatory witch hunt on hip-hop and U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters (D-California) was the only one speaking up for us—VIBE magazine unilaterally declared U.S. Reps. Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-Chicago) and Harold Ford Jr. (D-Michigan) the “hip-hop politicians.” Ford, who would’ve been a Blue Dog super-delegate to that nominating gathering was nowhere to be found to response to that labeling, and we were advised that he was more singularly a “house kinda guy.” During a special news conference with the black media (I was the only print journalist at the time who bothered to file published stories from and around the convention hall, providing pool print urban media coverage for the likes of The Source), when my electronic media colleagues were too mortified to ask him the hard questions, I asked JJJ what he had done to earn the VIBE-bestowed title and what he was going to do about the Tucker-led witch hunt to live up to that title. JJJ first glared at us as if I had called him out of his name and then repeated in a major cow of a huff, “These rappers better get themselves together and organize themselves.” Now his words had a basic ring of truth to them, AND the problem was that JJJ didn’t include ALL of hip-hop in his angry advice, nor did he provide specific guidance to us on closing ranks to provide for our common defense. On our end in Chicago, we expedited things and made both Moseley-Braun and Tucker back off with the warning shot of promising to expose some very potentially damaging details of proto-MeToo moments concerning violations against campaign workers by Moseley-Braun’s then South Africa-originating fiancé. Also consider that today’s hip-hop artists, etc., who put themselves out there as queenmakers and kingmakers aren’t particularly aloof from status quo establishment politics that get in the way of progressive change. To wit, Consider that Chance the Rapper’s endorsements for both the nonpartisan municipal election and run-off got kicked to the curb in the polls. Compare with Rhymefest’s endorsee in the run-off election, who won an unprecedented landslide victory of carrying all 50 Chicago wards, which Harold could not achieve in his lifetime. Ergo, like Maya Angelou for blacks and other disaffected groups, they are more political philosophers and less political strategist for hip-hop. *The U.S. Constitution, via the First Amendment, in prohibiting Congress from abridging freedom of speech, infringing on freedom of the press, interfering with the right to peaceably assemble and from interfering with the right to petition representatives in government for redress of grievances, implies that we the People have the clear right and responsibility to assure that our public servants our accountable to us. That collective freedom is underscored in Early American state papers with references to the concept that those who govern us may only do so with consent of those of us they govern. The Illinois Bill of Rights, Art. 1, spells that right and obligation out in Sec. 23, the Fundamental Principles clause. SUCCINCT MORAL: Our public servants—elected, appointed and hired—shall only suit hip-hop’s purposes and needs when actively compel them to do so. So as Jeanette Beatrice Taylor-Azeez, alderwoman-elected of the rehabilitating 20th Ward says, it’s not enough for us to be in spirit in the Chicago City Council Chamber, the Fifth Floor and other influential portions of Chicago City Hall AND the Cook County Bldg. to boot. We MUST physically be all over than civic complex to Ida B. Wells-Barnett agitate, Agitate, AGITATE, like we did for Phase 1 of New Council, i.e. getting Lori Lightfoot and a true progressive aldermanic caucus elected to City Council. In stubborn pursuit of power of, by and for the People, I continue to be my late father’s son, Mark F. Armstrong, Team Leader CHICAGO URBAN FINE ARTS COMMONWEALTH
Great history!!!

Where can we see official photos of the 2017 House Tour?
Someone mentioned there being a couple of menus from the Hotel Florence from the 1920s? I'd like to create a recipe book of vintage recipes from early Pullman and these would come in handy! TIA!
