“Greetings from the Pullman Chamber of Commerce”
Welcome to Pullman!
On behalf of all of us at the Pullman Chamber of Commerce I would like to take this moment to personally welcome you to Pullman! By picking up this guide you’re taking the first step in a positive direction to learn more about what our little paradise has to offer. And, whether your time in Pullman lasts for years or just one day, I can’t tell you how excited I am to take this first step with you.
Here are just a few quick facts about Pullman that perhaps you weren’t aware of…
Safety & Education – Ranked by Bloomberg Business in 2011 as the best small town in Washington to raise kids, Pullman has a near-invisible crime rate. Pullman has been recognized in a Hearst Foundation Publication as one of the top 100 school districts in the United States. Pullman High School is ranked #16 in the state of Washington.
College Town with a Twist – MSN.com named Washington State University at Pullman among the ten best college towns in North America. Pullman was included among “college towns so quintessential that some of the students walking across the quad for the first time will one day call them home.” The crimson and gray colors of the Cougar teams give us all our small town college town spirit and Coug pride!
Affordable Housing – The median housing price is $210k vs approximately $274k state-wide. In addition to student focused housing, established neighborhoods and newer sub-divisions, Pullman also has several facilities which focus on senior living, making this a perfect place to retire. In addition, there are several ‘bedroom communities’ within 30 miles which expands the housing options.
Healthcare – Our hospital is the newest in the Pacific Northwest and Pullman Regional Hospital ranks in the top 3% nationally for customer satisfaction. Additionally, the relationships that have been established between all of our area hospitals and physicians ensure that you will receive the best quality care, hands down.
Technology – Beyond our heritage of being a farming oasis, several technologies related businesses have added new jobs over the past thirty years and have also brought supporting businesses to further help our economy enjoy a low unemployment rate.
History & Photography – Our area is also full of hidden history gems that are scattered around our region on the Palouse Scenic Byway, down a country dirt road and even right here in town at some of our local cemeteries. Stop by the chamber office and pick up our Photography Hot Spots on the Palouse map and go exploring!
The Pullman Chamber of Commerce is excited to promote and be a part of the success of our fine city and we strive every day to fulfill our motto of “Making Pullman a better place to live, work and do business!”
Thank you for visiting!
Henry D. Johnston, President
