In May 1980 a group of interested Pulaski area citizens met to discuss the forming of a Pulaski Historical Society.  Without a home, the organization meetings were held in the Pulaski Library and the basement of the Oswego County Savings Bank.  Tom Nevich, then editor of the Pulaski Democrat was elected first president.  Tom left Pulaski about one and a half years later, and Doris Mattison became the second president.  Other presidents were Ken Smith, Virginia Smith, Nancy DelVecchio, Margaret Weigel, Selena Belser and Terry Rossman.In 1985, with the assistance of Mayor Floyd Carpenter and County Legislator Bruce Soule, the Village donated a small house on Park Street for use as a Museum. The Society members remodeled this building and made it a home for a growing collection of artifacts and archival material. In 1989 the Snow Memorial Trust offered the Society the building at 7477 (3428) Maple Avenue if we would use it as a Museum. This is the site of the original Snow home. The Benjamin Snow family were original settlers in Pulaski. Again the collection grew and a small building to the west of the Museum was converted into a “Carriage House” for displays of our farming and industrial past. In 2013 an addition to the Carriage House was completed and along with our farming and industrial past has displays of the retail businesses of Pulaski. The large meeting room with a kitchen area is convenient for our Programs and Brown Bag Lunches. In 2015 a Storage Shed was added to the Museum to store additional exhibits and artifacts. The Pulaski Historical Society’s museum on Maple Avenue is filled with artifacts, record, and exhibits of the village and area history. The building is also used for research, administration, and meeting space.
