Pulaski, Virginia (Part One)

Pulaski was incorporated as a town in 1886 and was named after a Polish Revolutionary war hero, Count Casimir Pulaski.

Pulaski was once a thriving industrious area backboned by manufacturing jobs.

As the American economy changed, these manufacturing jobs relocated overseas - which furthered the division between Pulaski County's upper-middle class and the poor.

With a church on every other block, Pulaski's deep-rooted faith in Christianity is ever-present. 

It's the kind of small town where you might get looked at funny if you don't have a deep-southern drawl, drive a truck, or go to church on Sundays. 

Everyone knows everybody and everybody talks about everyone. 

As the world continues to progress and move forward, long-time residents of Pulaski remain content with keeping things the way they've always been.
