Pullman Labor Day 2018
We’re proudly celebrating the Illinois Bicentennial during this year’s “Pullman Labor Day 2018” event. Join us on the grounds and street outside historic Hotel Florence at Pullman State Historic Site on Monday, September 3, 2018 between 2 and 5 pm. This free family-friendly event will have entertainment, music, food and a chance to learn more about the 1894 Pullman Labor Strike and the role of railroads in the development of Illinois – both bicentennial themes. We also hope to have a sneak peek inside Hotel Florence to see the great work being done to restore the grandeur of the first floor.
This year’s event partners -- Pullman State Historic Site, Friends of Pullman State Historic Site, Illinois Labor History Society, National Park Service, the Historic Pullman Foundation, and the National A. Philip Randolph Pullman Porter Museum -- are working hard to plan a great public event.
