Help Tell America's Stories: Pullman Railroad Days, May 14 and 15, 2022

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: HISTORIC PULLMAN FOUNDATION INC

RRD logo

PULLMAN RAILROAD DAYS: People, Progress & Innovation celebrates one of the important stories embedded in the Historic Pullman neighborhood's history: Railroad Innovation & the people that drive it.

The event opens " RAILROADERS: Jack Delano's Homefront Photography" exhibit; launches new guided tours of the Pullman factory site; offers guided tours of the neighborhood; provides limited access to Hotel Florence; tours of four historic rail cars, and much more!

To do all this we need your help!

The Historic Pullman Foundation, the official nonprofit partner of the Pullman National Monument, is looking for volunteers who can help with a variety of tasks, including ticket taking, way-finding, helping with tours, and a variety of other tasks.

Volunteers get priority access to the site and the tours, as well as snacks, a Pullman Railroad Days volunteer T-shirt, and a chance to be part of a dynamic and engaging community telling America's stories. Learn more about the event and the exhibit at https://www.pullmanil.org/ special-events/

We create opportunities for all people to experience and understand the continuing American story that is Pullman.

Description

What we do

We live our mission by performing three interrelated roles:

  • As the Friends Group for Pullman National Monument (PNM), we raise funds to support PNM priorities, augment their programs, and manage volunteers. We also provide support for the Pullman State Historic Site (PSHS).
  • We support efforts among various park partner and community organizations.
  • We continue the role we’ve played since 1973 as an historic preservation, education, and cultural history organization.
Our History

  • served as a vehicle to acquire and restore important public buildings within the Pullman Historic District;
  • developed and provided educational programs and tours; and
