Pulaski Area Historical Society
Promotes Brick Campaign


Display your family's ancestry at the Pulaski Museum. The Pulaski Area Historical Society is selling bricks that can be engraved with your parents, grandparents and great-grandparents names. It's a great way to display your family heritage. All proceeds from the bricks go toward maintaining the Pulaski Museum and all of its contents. Print out the form and send in your check with your information that you would like engraved on it.

PAHS Brick Fundraising Campaign is in full force. To date, the museum has sold over 100 commemorative bricks to donators to be displayed on the exterior wall of the museum. The bricks are sold for $100. Each brick is personalized with up to three lines of type.

The fundraiser is an effort by the PAHS to raise money that will help preserve historical artifacts at the Pulaski Museum. Currently, there is a need for insulation in the building that stands at 121 West Pulaski Street in downtown Pulaski. Climate control is a factor in preservation. For more information on the Brick Fundraiser, call Mike Blohowiak at 920-822-5042.

2014 Preservation Award

Rob Russell (pictured, right) was presented the 2014 Preservation Award for the work he has done on a barn located on Highway 32, about 4 miles north of Pulaski.

He said his motivating factor to do this project came from his Dad who taught him a hard work ethic. He has salvaged the old hewn beams, log rafters and some planking from the original building which he estimates to have been built in the 1920's.

He replaces the flag at the top of the silo whenever needed to show respect and thanksgiving to our veterans.

He does not give tours but if he's around when you stop in, he would be happy to show it to you.

To see more information on his project you can go to www.barnpatch.com.
