The Pullman National Monument tells the story of American opportunity. Diverse people whose stories intertwine in Pullman sought opportunity. Some succeeded. Others were limited—by race, gender, or economic status. Their stories came together in the town of Pullman, a planned community famed for its urban design and architecture. Designed as a utopia—it was a place to provide workers with a safe community, a better standard of living, and life without social ills. New to the national park system as of February 19, 2015, Pullman National Monument is coordinating with long established partners to continue to provide public programming and access within the monument as broader visitor services are being planned and developed. Start your visit at the temporary Pullman National Monument Visitor Information Center located at Cottage Grove and 112th Street. Park staff, volunteers and partners from the Historic Pullman Foundation are on hand to answer questions and provide suggestions on how to enjoy your visit to the monument. The Pullman State Historic Site and the National A. Phillip Randolph Pullman Porter Museum have exhibits, tours and interpretive programs to help you enjoy your experience.
