Historic Pullman Foundation
The mission of the Historic Pullman Foundation is to facilitate the preservation and restoration of original structures within the Town of Pullman and to promote public awareness of the significance of Pullman as one of the nation’s first planned industrial communities, now a designated City of Chicago, State of Illinois and National landmark district.
The Historic Pullman Foundation maintains business records at its business offices (listed below). Copies of annual 990 tax filings are on file and can be viewed through the website of the Attorney General of Illinois: http://www.illinoisattorneygeneral.gov/charities/index.html
The Foundation serves as a vehicle to acquire and restore important public buildings within the Pullman Historic District; to develop and provide educational programs and tours; and to conduct research and long range community planning to facilitate the continuing preservation and restoration of the Pullman Historic District.
In the furtherance of the mission, the Foundation maintains an archival collection. The policy regarding this collection is available below.
Through their efforts, the Town of Pullman was designated an Illinois Historic District in 1969, a National Landmark District in 1970 and in 1972, the southern part of the District was designated as one of the first landmark districts by the City of Chicago. More recently the City of Chicago amended the historic district boundaries to include both the north and southern parts of the district.
