Itinerary:

  1. Meet at the NW corner of Adams Street and Michigan Avenue at 9:00 am. Dress comfortably, wear good walking shoes, bring an umbrella, and enjoy a 45-minute bus ride to Pullman. First come, first served. We are going, rain or shine!
  2. A narrated history of the site on the bus by noted Pullman expert Mike Shymanski.
  3. Start at the Bielenberg Historic Pullman House Foundation, the restored 1888 house of plant manager H. H. Sessions, for introductory movies, coffee, and our tour orientation.
  4. Walking tours, in groups of 12, will go to the house of Thomas Dunbar (an executive with the Pullman Company), a Honeymoon Row tenement house of a worker at the factory, and the newly restored Americo Lisciotto house, with its interior from the 1960s. Walk-by tours will look at Arcade Park, the Hotel Florence and the Greenstone Church (both undergoing restoration), Market Hall Square (1892), the old Livery Stables, the old Masonic Lodge, and the Pullman Exhibit Hall, and many more interesting sights.
  5. After a sit-down box lunch back at the Welcome Center, we will head over to the Pullman Administration Building/Clock Tower Museum (and nearby North Erecting Shop), with its fascinating historical exhibits relating to the site, and its interesting museum shop full of pertinent books and bric-a-brac describing the Pullman Company and its era.
  6. On the way home, we will drive by the temporarily closed National A. Philip Randolph Pullman Porter Museum at the north end of the site on 104th Street, to catch a glimpse of this future venue describing the Pullman Company’s complex labor history.
  7. We expect to return by bus to the corner of Michigan and Adams by 6:00 p.m.
