The Pulaski County Courthouse is located in Pulaski, Virginia. As a stage stop on the old Baltimore and Nashville Stage Road, Newbern was the site of the first Pulaski County courthouse. When it burned in 1893, Pulaski and Dublin began a heated battle with Newbern to “host” the county seat. In January of 1894, the General Assembly authorized an election to decide “whether the county-seat… be removed from the town of Newbern at all; and, if so removed, whether to the town of Pulaski, in said county, or to the town of Dublin, in said county.” Both Dublin and Pulaski donated suitable sites, but citizens of Pulaski sweetened the deal by offering to cover the costs of the building. In the election Pulaski was chosen. The losers filed suite, alleging intimidation and other illegalities. The case went to the Virginia Supreme Court who ruled in favor of Pulaski. Learn More About State of Virginia Court, Tax, Land and Probate Records.
