Pullman House tour showcases historic homes this weekend, Oct. 9/10.

Since 1973, the Historic Pullman Foundation and the Pullman Civic Organization have co-sponsored the annual Pullman House Tour making this one of Chicago's oldest continuing tour of homes. This year's tour, October 9/10, 11 am- 5pm beginning at 11141 S. Cottage Grove Ave., will highlight select homes that represent a cross-section of the different types of housing built in the 1880's as part of the original Town of Pullman.

Pullman is a City of Chicago, State of Illinois and U.S. Department of the Interior designated landmark district. On February 19, 2015 Pullman was designated as a National Monument, a unit of the National Park System and is Chicago's only National Park facility. Owners of Pullman's landmark houses maintain the historic details on the exterior. The private side of Pullman residences which will be opened to the public for this tour reflect the style and taste of our modern residents including beautifully restored interiors as well as tasteful modern renovations.

Join our House Tour weekend celebration and enjoy the Pullman National Monument- see great houses, selected public buildings, exhibits and a video on the history of this unique landmark district, enjoy music, food, antique cars (Sunday only), and so much more.
