Pullman Model Town, Model Historic SiteItem#: 281259
In the first part of the 20th century, the Pullman Palace Car Company transformed basic railroad travel into a luxurious, personalized excursion. The company hired and trained thousands of emancipated African Americans for service positions at a time of widespread employment discrimination, developed an integrated industrial town south of Chicago where employees could live and work, and became the site of a nationally significant railroad strike and boycott.
