Pulaski's Square Mile Marker

Pulaski's Square Mile Marker

A few years ago when I was driving through Pulaski and heading north of town along highway US 31A, I saw a green "Historical Marker" sign next to an empty gravel lot. I pulled into the gravel lot and I didn't see anything historical anywhere around. Then after a couple of minutes I saw this at the base of that green "historical marker" sign. It's easy to miss. It reads:

This marker is one of four which laid out one square mile (640 acres=one section) in 1841. A land grant was issued in 1809 and 1813 to the city of Pulaski and the county of Giles, by James Madison, President of the United States.
