    Tour of Pullman National Monument / Optional / $55

    The Association of Preservation Technology, Western Great Lakes Chapter and the Construction History Society of America invite you to join this tour as part of their 2019 Symposium:  Preservation of Industrial Archaeology and its Construction History.

    Join APT WGLC and CHSA as we take a guided walk of the town and learn about the history of Pullman, its architecture and the landmark community today. Experience a walk back in time - almost all of the original 1880’s housing and many of orginal public buildings comprise the district today.

    Pullman’s experiment in community planning and industrial order was declared “the World’s most perfect town” but circumstances could not prevent growing labor unrest fueled on by one the of the worst economic recessions in our Nation’s history, resulting in the Pullman Strike of 1894. See and hear the vibrant history and stories of the Pullman Historic District revealed.
