Welcome to your official Pullman city government website. 

Pullman, with its historical roots in agriculture, was incorporated on April 11, 1888. It has matured into a community with small-town comforts and cosmopolitan amenities.  Home to world class Washington State University, Pullman benefits from a diverse and international student population, PAC 12 sporting events as well as cultural and entertainment programs.

Business environment

The seeds of high technology are also flourishing in Pullman's fertile environment. View the Southeast Washington Economic Development Association's "Palouse Business...Palouse Life" video here.

Award-winning community

Pullman has received numerous awards over the years and has been recognized in national publications as an outstanding community.

A community of parks and paths

Pullman bears other fruits as a result of its well-educated, involved and generous year-round population. During fall 2002, voters approved the creation of a metropolitan park district for the purpose of improving, maintaining and acquiring parks and recreation facilities. As a result, Pullman enjoys 17 distinct parks and natural areas encompassing more than 145 acres as well as more than 15 miles of pathways  to walk, run or bike--truly a community of parks and paths.
