It’s like taking a step back in time - pure genius, innovation, and HISTORY. If you like old architecture, and a taste of the past - check out this 1850’s neighborhood in modern Chicago! The tour is hidden gem in this grand city.

I highly recommend reading up on this attraction, or taking a tour with one of the site park rangers or volunteer docents. This place has an amazing story to tell. George Pullman revolutionized train travel by introducing a comfortable “palace car.” He developed the town...More
