In an interview with The Associated Press on Friday, Aug. 22, 2014, Jarvis said he plans to recommend that the Interior Secretary ask President Obama to declare Chicago’s historic Pullman neighborhood a unit of the national park system. The neighborhood’s ornate brick homes were built in the 1800s by industrialist George Pullman as a blue-collar utopia to house workers from his sleeping-railcar factory. Supporters say the neighborhood also is significant for its place in revolutionizing the railroad industry and its contributions to the African-American labor movement.
