Pullman National Monument

On February 19, 2015, President Barack Obama designated Pullman as a National Monument, culminating more than three years of efforts by the local community, elected officials, and advocacy organizations.

CNI played a lead role in coordinating and sponsoring the designation process, providing advocacy and financial resources to make the National Monument a reality.

In a report entitled “Economic Engine, an Analysis of the Potential Impact of a Pullman National Historical Park” the authors concluded the following impacts by the 10th year of operation:  300,000 visitors per year; 356 annual jobs created; $15 million in annual wages; $40 million in sustained economic impact.
