Originally built as a vaudeville house, converted into a dry goods store during the depression, and revived as a movie house in 1937, this theater has been a cornerstone of Downtown Pulaski.

Donated to the town by the N&W Railroad, the east end of the park features a statue dedicated to Confederate soldiers, placed by the town in 1917. A gazebo which is the site for summer concerts is also on site, as well as an original fountain, Civil War and World War I cannons, and a memorial.
