Pullman Heritage Project: Legacies of Race and Industry in a Fresh-Water Entrepôt

Author(s): Timothy Scarlett

Year: 2018

Summary

The communities of Pullman live amid landscapes rich in industrial legacies. The legacies are industrial and economic, aesthetic, ecological and enviornmental. Since the town's founding, it has been part of global currents and flows of people, capital, products, and information. With the founding of Pullman National Monument by President Obama in 2015, the residents' long struggle to tell their stories have taken a new turn. Michigan Technological University's Industrial Heritage and Archaeology program is collaborating with the National Park Service in a study of heritage resources available for the Pullman Story. We are also examining best practices to reflect on how archaeologists and allied scholars can contribute to modern Pullman.
