PULLMAN — The Pullman neighborhood and historic sites related to its namesake company are open to the public during this weekend’s Open House Chicago.

Organized by the Chicago Architecture Center, the open house puts more than 170 sites in a couple of dozen neighborhoods on display Saturday and Sunday.

Beyond allowing access to interesting buildings not always available to the public, the event explores themes of neighborhood investment, community engagement and historic preservation.

CAC’s Angela Esposito details some Open House Chicago highlights:

This year’s Open House will feature the Pullman historical site, which is Chicago’s first national park and includes the National A. Phillip Porter Museum, the site’s many individual homes and the new Administrative Building and grounds.

The Pullman site was named a national monument in 2015 before being designated a national historical park by President Joe Biden late last year.

Entry is free unless otherwise noted. Check the individual site listings for more details and hours of operation.

Here are the Pullman sites you can visit:
