The Pullman Lens: A Tale of Three Houses

Sunday, July 30 - 3:00 PM - 4:30 PM
Location Info
11141 S. Cottage Grove Ave.
Chicago, IL 60628 United States



Don’t judge a book by its cover or a building by its facade. Join us for an exploration of the people who lived in three Pullman’s homes.

Pullman houses are like ships that move on an ocean of time. We will explore the residents of three houses and learn about their remarkable lives.

We will visit the first Irish and Catholic mayor of Chicago, the founder of the British-American Tobacco Corporation, and the director of the famous Pullman Band among others. Along the way, we’ll meet the most beautiful woman in Pullman and share a condolence visit from Robert Todd Lincoln.

Members attend FREE, but please register so we know how many people to expect.

Join Historic Pullman Foundation at these casual presentations on the fifth Sunday of the Month. This series is a chance to learn more in-depth about Pullman history (the man, the town, the company).
