"The statue of Count Casimir Pulaski is located in Pulaski Park on 12th street south of Walnut. The statue, dedicated in 1938 depicts Count Pulaski and was originally cast in concrete. The statue was shipped to the New York World’s Fair in 1939, and remained there until the Detroit Institute of Arts acquired it. It was then given to Wyandotte, to be place in Pulaski park. As a result of its extensive decay, the statue was re-cast in bronze in 1991, and rededicated to the city"
