The Pullman neighborhood’s popular autumn housewalk returns once again the first weekend of October. The housewalk, which allows visitors into the personal residences of homeowners in the Pullman Historic District, is a big hit for architecture fans and history buffs and a major draw for the Pullman neighborhood. For this year’s edition, eight houses will be featured. One of houses highlighted this year is a worker cottage that features its original floor plan and layout from the 1800s.

According to one of the organizers of this year’s housewalk, the popular attraction draws upwards of 2,000 visitors to the far south side neighborhood during the weekend tours. This year’s edition marks the 44th year that the Historic Pullman Foundation and the Pullman Civic Organization have hosted the event. And with the Pullman National Monument plan gaining more momentum each year, this year’s Historic Pullman House Tour is not one to miss.

Tours run between 11:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 7 and Sunday, October 8. Tickets are available now and are priced at $20 for general adult admission while seniors get a $3 discount. Tickets will also be available at the door during the weekend of the housewalk, but prices will be bumped up to $23 for adults and $20 for seniors.
