Pullman

Pullman is a neighborhood on the south side of Chicago  and is known for the two historic areas it encompasses-the older historic area is often referred to as just “Pullman.” The area is a Chicago Landmark District and the northern annex historic area is usually referred to as “North Pullman”.

Pullman is full of architecturally significant buildings, among them The Hotel Florence, the Arcade Building which was destroyed in the 1920s, the Clock Tower and Factory, the complex surrounding Market Square.

Historic Pullman was built in the 1880s by George Pullman for his railroad car company. The Pullman Historic District has obtained National, State, and City landmark status to protect the original 900 rowhouses and public buildings built by George Pullman.
