Pulaski County Courthouse – Somerset, Ky.

Pulaski County Courthouse, Somerset, Ky.

Pulaski County is named for Casimir Pulaski, a Polish soldier who saved George Washington’s life during the American Revolution. He is only one of seven people to have been honorarily given U.S. Citizenship. The Commonwealth of Kentucky has actually recognized a Casimir Pulaski day since the 1940s to honor the heritage of Polish Americans.

This judicial center is enormous. For the life of me, I can’t understand why Pulaski County needs a three story courthouse with two circuit courtrooms.
Anyway, I took this photo last week after the ice storm, and I nearly killed myself trying to get a better shot. The courthouse square is completely paved, and I made the mistaken attempt to walk on it. This shot was a compromise.
