The National Park Service and Midwest Archaeological Center are working with scholars at Michigan Technological University to create a Historic Resource Study to synthesize the history of the recently established Pullman National Monument. This site stands at the intersection of industrial labor history and urban planning associated with the Pullman Company. The 2019 annual meeting’s Chicago location offers historians the opportunity to visit the 1894 planned residential community and view remains of the factory complex. After a one-hour outdoor walking tour, participants will gather inside to discuss their reactions to the site and contribute to the analysis of the history of Pullman.

Please note: Participants will travel by bus. Closed-toe shoes required.

Limit 25 people. $20 members, $30 nonmembers
