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 Historical Park (PNHP), we raise funds to support PNHP 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

HPF was chartered in 1973 as an Illinois nonprofit corporation with 501(c)3 tax status. Since then we have:

  • served as a vehicle to acquire and restore important public buildings within the Pullman Historic District;
  • developed and provided educational programs and tours; and
  • conducted research and long-range community planning to help preserve and restore the Pullman Historic District.
