The town of Pullman, Illinois was founded in 1880 by George M. Pullman as a site for his car-building operations (Pullman Palace Car Company) and to house his employees. The area originally purchased by Pullman covered nearly 4000 acres and ran from 87th Street to 130th Street. The developed area was much smaller and was bounded by South Langley Street to the east, Cottage Grove to the west, 115th Street to the south, and continuing a few blocks north of 111th Street. Pullman saw many advantages in the Calumet site, including the topography and fertility of the soil. He also believed that in choosing this area for his model town, it was far enough removed from what he called the "evil influences" of the City of Chicago, and would prove to make better and more content workers. Also important were commercial and industrial factors. As Chicago was the transportation center of the Midwest, all railroads entering the city passed through the Calumet region.
The master builder of Pullman was Solon Spencer Beman, a young architect from New York. He was commissioned by George Pullman to begin designing the town in 1879. Together with landscape architect Nathan F. Barrett, complete plans for the buildings and grounds of the town were laid out, and construction began in the spring of 1880. By the following year, the first residents began to move in, and the company car shops went into operation. The town gradually began to take shape as residences, public buildings, paved streets and parks were built, but it wasn't until 1884 that this undertaking was completed.
Many people seeking employment were now attracted to this area, and Pullman soon became the focal point for the continued development and expansion of the Calumet region. As a result of this growth, the town was annexed to the City of Chicago in 1889 along with the Village of Hyde Park.
For the next few years, the town continued to grow, and the production level of the Pullman Palace Car Company was high, until 1893 when the country entered another business depression due to the over expansion of the railroad industry. As a result, George Pullman laid off many employees and drastically cut wages. The employees were already unhappy with the high cost of living in the town, and angry because the wages were cut, whereas rent and other expenses stayed the same. They soon decided to take action in the form of a grievance committee. George Pullman was unwilling to compromise, and the Pullman Strike of 1894 was the result (which served as a milestone in the continuing development of the labor movement).
Three years later George Pullman died, and drastic policy changes were made in the company that would affect the whole town. A decision by the Illinois Supreme Court in 1898, forced the company to relinquish all of its non-industrial property. Though the deadline for this was postponed, nearly half of the available property in the town fell into private ownership. When the company finally sold its non-industrial property, it also discontinued the maintenance of the buildings and grounds, and the physical appearance of the town declined.
A large turnover in population also contributed to the town's decline. In 1908 the company switched to all-steel car production, and as a result skilled workers were no longer needed. Many moved away and were replaced by unskilled immigrants. This trend continued until the late 1920s, when the community began to stabilize, and the town of Pullman became just another Chicago neighborhood.
Today the town of Pullman stands as a historical and architectural link to the past. Though many of the original buildings have been demolished (the Pullman School in 1913, the Arcade Building in 1926, and the Water Tower in the 1950s) others such as the Administration Building and Clock Tower, the Greenstone (Pullman Methodist) Church, the Hotel Florence and numerous residences are still standing.
The Historic Pullman Foundation, Inc., has acquired a number of buildings in the town, such as the Hotel Florence and numerous residences, and is in the process of restoring them. They also operate a restaurant in the hotel, and conduct tours of the hotel and town itself.
In 1969, the Pullman district was designated an Illinois Historic Landmark, a National Landmark, in 1970, and a Chicago Landmark in 1972.
*For additional information on the Town of Pullman and Pullman Company, see the Newberry Library. A finding aid to the Newberry's Collection is available in the Reading Room.

This series contains items such as articles, brochures, historical sketches, newsclippings, programs and related material on the business establishments, organizations, people, and schools of Pullman, Illinois. The files are divided into two distinct categories:
A: Community History, 1880s-1970s.
The history of the town and the functions of the various organizations such as the Pullman Athletic Association, Pullman Land Association and the Women's Society of Pullman are reflected in this series through brochures, historical sketches, newsclippings and programs. Of special interest is a demographic questionnaire from the 1880s, which is very similar to the census of today, though much more detailed. The material is arranged alphabetically by subject.
Subseries B: Community Publications, 1893-1977.
Many of the publications of this series were written by residents of the town, such as Bertha Chadwick Medsker's series of articles on pioneers of Pullman which appeared weekly in the Calumet Index in 1954 & 1955, or "Our Community," a monthly bulletin published by the Pullman Trust & Savings Bank, which included articles on the past and current activities of the town. Also included is Pullman-The City of Brick, by H. R. Koopman, a local photographer whose photographs and narratives of the area captured much of its history in detail. Other publications include student dissertations, and reprints of articles from professional journals. The material is arranged in alphabetical order by title.
Approximately 97 photographs have been removed from the manuscript material and placed in the Audio-Visual Collection. An index to these photographs can be found following the Box and Folder Inventory (again, the majority of these photographs were taken by Henry R. Koopman, a local photographer).

The scrapbook contains newsclippings from various local papers such as the Calumet Index, The Christian Leader, The Sunday Herald and the Pullman Journal, excerpts of articles from various professional journals such as The Nation and Railway Review, and a number of programs and pamphlets giving a brief history of the Town of Pullman.
