Title: Giles County Court House

Date Created: 1951
Abstract: 2 tifs. A postcard of the Giles County Courthouse in Pulaski, Tennessee sent from Pulaski, Tennessee to Louisville, Kentucky.

It was constructed again in 1908 at a cost of $133,000. The courthouse was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1983. The verso reads: "Tuesday AM, Rain all the way thru Nashville. Stopped for the night at Columbia, Tenn. About 50 mi. south of Nashville. Had a nice room in Tourist home. Good luck so far. Love Ada and Ray. Sent to Mrs. C. Kelley and Dorothy in Louisville, KY."
