Welcome to the Pulaski County, Georgia Website

When someone says "the South," the Magnolia Midlands of Georgia comes to mind. Pulaski County, Georgia is located in the heart of the Midlands. "The South" is not specifically a southern location, but a frame of mind and a way of life. Gracious, elegant, and uncomplicated describes the southern way of living in Pulaski County.

The citizenry of the county are very proud of their heritage and continue to instill today the values passed down by those generations who have gone before us. Those values, by the very nature of "southernism," include preservation of our heritage and pride in our family histories! Please use this site to assist you in searching for your ancestors and documenting your own family heritage."


Pulaski County was created 13 December 1808 from what was then Laurens County. Georgia's 36th county was named for Polish Count Casimir Pulaski who died in Savannah of wounds suffered in the Revolutionary War. The Ocmulgee River runs through Pulaski County, and this area was the capital of the Creek Indian Confederacy.

The county seat and only incorporated city in Pulaski County is Hawkinsville. The courthouse is shown below.


Hawkinsville is home to one of the largest harness racing training facilities in the country. Many trainers 'winter' in Hawkinsville, and on a mild afternoon a ride to the track will yield the beautiful sight of a bevy of sukeys being pulled around the track by beautiful thoroughbred racers!
