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.
Public & Private Institutions Of Learning
Education is provided by public, private and home schools. State governments set overall educational standards, often mandate standardized tests for K–12 public school systems and supervise, usually through a board of regents, state colleges, and universities. Funding comes from the state, local, and federal government. Private schools are generally free to determine their own curriculum and staffing policies, with voluntary accreditation available through independent regional accreditation authorities, although some state regulation can apply.
