PULLMAN HISTORIC DISTRICT—
This one-time company town on Chicago’s far Southwest Side is made up of neat rows of houses and buildings built in the late 1800s. George Pullman, inventor of the Pullman railway sleeping car, laid the foundation for a model industrial town where his employees could live. Today, guided group tours offer a glimpse of the Historic Pullman Foundation Visitors Center, the Greenstone Church and the famous Hotel Florence, which is currently under renovation. www. pullmanil.org. 773.785.8901.
