Success at Pullman – Chicago’s first unit of the National Park Service!

February 19, 2015

Today, President Obama designated a portion of Chicago’s Pullman Historic District a National Monument, making it the Windy City’s first unit of the National Park Service. The move comes after decades of work by residents and supporters to protect and promote the historic neighborhood that sits 13 miles south of downtown Chicago.

You can get all the details in today’s blog post, or watch a video of the ceremony below. Either way, won’t you join us in thanking President Obama?

Congratulations, Pullman!

This May, our Preservation Month theme is “People Saving Places” to shine the spotlight on everyone doing the work of saving places—in big ways and small—and inspiring others to do the same!
