CHICAGO—(ENEWSPF)—February 23, 2016. The Pullman District has for a number of years been deemed an historic landmark community. As of March of 2015, Pullman also had been designated by President Barack Obama as a National Monument; a testament to its national historical significance.
Historic Pullman Garden Club members, as well as many of the residents of the community, take pride in the history and the important place that Pullman maintains in the areas of industry, labor unionism, architecture, and community.
Please join the Historic Pullman Garden Club to hear about efforts looking toward the future, and to how residents can help the historical community become one of Chicago’s most sustainable, forward-thinking neighborhoods for the next generation and beyond. The event will take place on Sunday, February 28 at 3 p.m. at the Historic Pullman Center, 614 East 113th Street, Chicago.
This interactive presentation will invite the audience to discuss climate change, urbanization, globalization, home life, transportation, environment – each with respect to Pullman as a model community in the 21st century.
Energy conservation, quality water and air, healthy foods, community gardens, and other topics will be covered. Attendees will be invited to “sign on” to making Pullman “Chicago’s most sustainable community.”
Refreshments will be served, and an optional, short historical tour of the Pullman neighborhood will follow.
