The United States of America is a country in North America that extends from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean and shares land borders with Canada and Mexico. The United States is a federal constitutional republic, with its capital in Washington, D.C., District of Columbia.
Pullman is a city in Whitman County, Washington, United States. The population was 24,675 at the 2000 census, although this statistic does not included a college dormitory that was accidentally mis-allocated to the town of Endicott, across the county. The main campus of Washington State University, WSU is located in Pullman.
The city was incorporated in 1886 with a population of 250 people. It was originally named Three Forks, after the three small rivers Missouri Flat Creek, Dry Fork, and the South Fork of the Palouse River that converge there. The city was later renamed after George Pullman, of railroad car fame and fortune. The city is home to the National Lentil Festival, held annually during harvest season. Pullman sits on four major hills that divide the city nearly perfectly into quarters are Military Hill, Pioneer Hill, College Hill, and Sunnyside Hill. Military Hill is the site of Pullman High School, home of the Pullman Greyhounds.
In 1971, Pullman became a non-chartered code city under the Mayor-Council form of government. The city has an elected mayor with an elected seven-member council and an appointed administrative officer, the city supervisor. The current mayor is Glenn A. Johnson who doubles as a professor at WSU's Edward R. Murrow School of Communication and is also the long-time WSU Cougars Football announcer in Martin Stadium and Basketball announcer at Beasley Coliseum.
An expanding high-tech industry is located on the north end of the city, anchored by Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories, founded by Edmund O. Schweitzer III, a Ph. D. graduate of WSU. SEL and other firms are located within the 107-acre Pullman Industrial Park, run by the Port of Whitman County. Seven miles east of Pullman is the town of Moscow, Idaho, home of the University of Idaho.
Pullman is the kind of city you daydream about. It is a city with endless recreational opportunities, rich history, and modern day luxuries.
