Long Description:
"The Package" is a great action thriller of East-West cold war espionage and intrigue, with many scenes filmed in the Chicago area.

The Pullman Historic District is a unique community, built in 1880-84 as a planned model industrial town for the Pullman's Palace Car Company. In 1907, all Pullman residential properties were sold and have been privately owned ever since. In 1969, South Pullman receives State of Illinois landmark status. District includes all original housing from 111th to 115th Street, including factory buildings north of 111th Street to 109th Place along Cottage Grove Avenue. In 1971, the entire Pullman district, from 103rd to 115th Streets, received National Historic Landmark District designation. In 1972, South Pullman is designated as one of the first City of Chicago landmark districts. In 1973, the Historic Pullman Foundation is formed to further the preservation efforts of the District, which continues to this day.

The Historic Pullman Visitor Center is a starting point for your visit to the district.

Pullman Factory Tours are conducted 1st and 3rd Sundays, starting in May, at 11:30 a.m. These are well worth attending to get the best overview of the site.
