  • Ben Aybar '21

    Ben Aybar ’21 stopped by Glenn Hasslinger and Tessa Johnson’s America’s National Parks class on Nov. 21 to share his experience as an intern for the Pullman National Historical Park, located just outside Chicago, Illinois. He shared that PNHP is a new park and is very different from what most people think about when they think about National Parks, such as Yellowstone or the Grand Canyon. Mr. Aybar explained that PNHP is much smaller in size, near an urban city center and was designated a National Park due to its significant historic origins in the Pullman Car Company, which manufactured railroad cars from the late 19th to early 20th century.
