"The Town of Pullman possesses an interest above and beyond that of railroads and wheels. It stands related to the question how cities should be built and in general how man sould live. Young as this village is, it is answering rapidly some inquiries over which wise men have pondered from Plato to Robert Owen." -Professor David Swing, April 1883.

The above image is a detail from the mural designed and created by students of the American Academy of Art in 1996.
Entitled "Visual Interpretations of Pullman," and is found on the rear wall of the Pullman Visitor's Center.
