Pulaski County was created in 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 Pulaski area was the capital of the Creek Indian Confederacy.

The city of Hawkinsville was named for Colonel Benjamin Hawkins, a Revolutionary War hero and the federal Indian Agent for the four Southeastern tribes. He lived in Crawford County from 1794 until 1816.

Hawkinsville is home to one of the largest harness racing training facilities in the country.

There are three entries on the National Register of Historic Places from Pulaski County: the Hawkinsville Opera House, the Pulaski County Courthouse, and Taylor Hall.
