About this book
Capital County brings together thirteen articles from the award winning journal of the Pulaski County Historical Society. Topics include events, places, and people drawn from pre-territorial days to modern times in the story of Pulaski County, Arkansas. As one of the oldest counties in the state and the county of the state’s capital city of Little Rock, Pulaski County’s history has frequently been state history due to the prominence of the city and county in Arkansas’s politics and development since the early 1800s.
Capital County also features an overview essay on the county’s history written for this publication by Martha Williamson Rimmer, editor of the Pulaski County Historical Review for twenty-one years. Rimmer’s essay provides a useful summary and represents nearly a quarter of this 266-page contribution to local and state history.
