Pulaski County is Arkansas's fifth county, formed on December 15, 1818. It is named for Casimir Pulaski, a Polish volunteer who saved George Washington's life during the American Revolutionary War.

U. M. Rose, a pro-Confederate attorney, was county chancellor (judge and chief county executive) from 1860 until the fall of Little Rock to Union forces on September 1, 1863.

An 1863 American Civil War battle, the Battle of Bayou Fourche, also known as the Battle of Little Rock, occurred a few days later in Pulaski County.

Pulaski County was home to Willow Springs Water Park, one of the oldest water parks in the nation, which opened in 1928 and closed in 2013.
