The proclamation, creating the Pullman National Monument

Some of the main factors that contributed to the National Monument designation are Pullman's unique history, its contribution to the rise of the industrial middle class, its role in African-American labor history and the Great Migration, and its importance in the development of modern American society.

We are one of America's newest partnership parks, with Federal, State, and private ownership and partnerships of the historic fabric of Pullman.
