4) The White Store Robbery

6) Prohibition In Pulaski

You are cordially invited to join us at the Pulaski Area Historical Society on a virtual tour into Pulaski’s rich past and those of the surrounding rural communities. We will take a closer look at the history of the village, it’s neighbors, and the personalities that were both intriguing and (at times) infamous. Join us and learn how the iron road created both boom and bust for Pulaski and its neighbors. We will visit the museum and have a small discussion of one of the more infamous objects in the collection. Civil unrest and not-so-biblical Plagues? During the Great Depression one of the area’s industries brought National Guardsmen to invade neighboring rural communities along with a mini-plague that threatened a way of life. Lots of fascinating stories lie just beneath the surface (with more to come). 

At the halfway point of the tour we will return to Pulaski (downtown to be precise) and set the stage for the night when a native son & ex-prize fighter found himself tangling with a desperate criminal who was intent on killing him. After such a tragic tale we will switch gears and talk of the great and wondrous fair that once graced Pulaski. In the mid 1910s into the 1920s Pulaski hosted the Tri-County Fair? It must have been fairly big since it included a half mile horse racing track and grandstands.  Are there signs of it in the landscape? We at the PAHS think so and want to share our thoughts with you. We will finish the tour discussing a brief history of Saloons in Pulaski and how the village responded to Prohibition (including those daring bootleggers and parlor proprietors that gambled with the law). It should be a charming if not intoxicating discussion. 

The tour is completely free to the public. It will air the week of Casimir Pulaski Week and all we ask is that viewers sign up so we can provide them with a link to the tour. Please join us for our first virtual tour into Pulaski’s past (you will walk away entertained and enlightened, we promise). Sign up here!
