Pulaski County

Pulaski County was created on December 15, 1818, and was one of five counties organized when Arkansas was part of the Missouri Territory. It was named for Count Casimir Pulaski, a Polish soldier credited with saving George Washington’s life during the Revolutionary War. The landscape of the county is rugged terrain western and northern and rolling hills in the southern tip, with the Arkansas River Valley delta in the east. Pulaski County is the most populous county in the state. Little Rock is the county seat and the state Capitol. The economic base is largely government and support services. Metropolitan Pulaski County offers many educational and cultural opportunities such as the Arkansas Arts Center, UA Little Rock and the Little Rock Zoo. Pinnacle Mountain State Park, an 1,800-acre environmental park is only 15 miles from Little Rock and offers picnicking, hiking, and canoeing on the Big and Little Maumelle rivers. The state Capitol, built of Arkansas granite, is a scaled-down replica of the nation’s Capitol. The Old State House, Arkansas’ capitol from 1836 to 1911 (except briefly during the Civil War), houses a museum of Arkansas history. In the large central hall of the 1912 courthouse, 12 imposing statues representing art, justice, agriculture and machinery stand on pedestals supported by 16 marble columns that ring a two-story rotunda capped with a magnificent stained-glass dome. A large metal bust of Count Pulaski is centered beneath the rotunda on the inlaid marble floor of alternating white and gray radial bands. Every door has large brass fixtures with the seal of the Arkansas Territory engraved on the push plates and “PC” engraved on the doorknobs. The population of Pulaski County is 399,125 (2020 Census).
