Pulaski, VA


Pulaski, VA WeatherPulaski is an incorporated town in Pulaski County. The town's population in 2000 was 9,473 persons (2000 U.S. Census). The town began as a point established on the Virginia & Tennessee Railroad (V&T) called "Martin's", so name in accordance with the Virginia tradition of naming a depot after the person that owned the land where the station was established. In about 1884, the Norfolk & Western Railroad (N&W) renamed the station-point "Pulaski" and the Pulaski Improvement Company began planning the construction of a grandiose hotel, the Maple Shade Inn, near the N&W station.
