Pullman: New Narratives in a Historic Community

1:00 PM – 2:00 PM


With the recent opening of the Pullman National Monument, the complex narrative of this South Side community continues to become even richer. During this walking tour, visitors will get to learn about how the Pullman community has embraced changed over time by talking about the ways in which the art, architecture, and public spaces have been an integral part of this process. We’ll also get a chance to hear from rangers at the Pullman National Monument. This tour is hosted by urbanologist and Chicago author Max Grinnell.

Learn about the people, organizations and places of Chicago who have championed freedom of expression, art, architecture, music, reading, culture and community through our “Uncensored Chicago” neighborhood walking tours. What are the stories that you haven’t heard, and why have those histories not been told? Learn about these remarkable people that helped shape our City, and explore what new ideas for continued culture, community and expression are on the horizon, with urbanologist Max Grinnell.
