The Calumet Heritage Partnership (CHP) is a diverse, bi-state partnership of environmental, cultural and historical organizations and individuals, libraries, educational institutions, municipalities, and governmental agencies.  Each partner is committed to celebrating, preserving and protecting the unique heritage of the Calumet region.

CHP's involvement in the Industrial Heritage Archives of Chicago's Calumet Region grew out of an unsuccessful effort to save the structures at the ACME Steel Coke Plant. During the period that demolition was postponed, many documents, architectural drawings, photographs, artifacts and other materials were salvaged from the plant and are currently stored at the Pullman State Historic Site.
