Pullman Exhibit Hall, 11141 S. Cottage Grove Ave

The Pullman Exhibit Hall was opened in 1993 by the Historic Pullman Foundation as an adaptive reuse of a 50s American Legion Hall. When George Pullman first built his town in 1881, there was an enormous structure on this site called the Arcade Building. 

Photo 2 shows Pullman strikers outside the building. The Illinois National Guard can be seen guarding the building during the Pullman Railroad Strike of 1894. This building was an extremely brilliant forerunner to the modern-day shopping mall!
