Pullman National Monument tells the story of an experimental industrial town built in 1880 for George Pullman, an American engineer and industrialist, and the company workers over almost a century of rail car production. Pullman is significant for two eras of labor history--the Strike and Boycott of 1894 and the African American union, the Brotherhood of the Sleeping Car Porters, during the 1920s-30s. Labor relations, transportation, urban planning, and the fight for civil rights are all part of Pullman's lasting impact on American life.
Handcrafted by our small workshop crew in Wooster, Ohio, this replica is made from 3/4" thick wood with colorful details on the front and a little description on the back. Look for Casper, our mascot black cat, taking up residence within the design. This is the sign of an authentic Cat’s Meow!
