In January of 1894, the General Assembly authorized an election to decide “whether the county-seat … be removed from the town of Newbern at all; and, if so removed, whether to the town of Pulaski, in said county, or to the town of Dublin, in said county.” Both Dublin and Pulaski donated suitable sites, but citizens of Pulaski sweetened the deal by offering to cover the costs of the building.
