Pullman Administration Building and Clock Tower
Built in 1880, the Pullman Adminstration Building and Clock Tower was the center of the Pullman company as well as the center of town. The clock chimed on the hour and the 3-acre artificial lake in front of the complex, Lake Vista, provided water for the company's steam engines. A December 1998 fire, set by an arsonist, stunned residents. A massive renovation is underway. The complex is only visitable during the Annual House Tour.
The ruins of Market Hall date from 1893. Built after the original building burnt down in 1892, the lower floor of the Romanesque-style Market Hall contains stalls for selling foods and pharmacuticals while the upper levels, demolished during the Depression of the 1930s, featured meeting rooms and an banquet hall. A 1973 fire gutted the building but plans are now finally underway to stablize and recreated the building.
Dining room-Hotel Florence
This room was used as a dining room. In the attached photo you can see the belongings of the last resident of the hotel, Pearl White, who lived in room 111 of the annex until the hotel closed. Among the items was a glass jar of Tang and a colostomy bag.
This room was recently seen in the film "Road to Perdition", I believe this room was used as Paul Newman's office but it's been a long time since I've seen the film.
