My South Side friends recommended this place many years ago--I'm glad it is not a National Monument. It's out-of-the-way, but well worth the trip. The temporary visitors' center has a great mural, and the free tour of the neighborhood was great. You have to use...More
This is a good thing to go and see. You would never know that it was it's own little community back in the day when the train cars were being built there. Alot of history about this place. To bad that fire had destroyed part...More
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
