Pulaski County was formally organized 6 May¬†1839, when a group of men met at a log cabin and designated ‚ÄúWinnemack‚ÄĚ, on the bank of the Tippecanoe River, as the ‚ÄúSeat of Justice,‚ÄĚ and received donations of land for a public square, a public seminary, and a graveyard. Winamac was named after a Potawatomi Indian Chief whohad ¬†lived in the area in the early 1800s.¬† In addition to being the county seat, Winamac was the location of a government land office from 1839 to 1857 and hosted the infamous Ford Pinto Trial in 1980.
Today, Winamac is home to roughly 2,500 residents, several parks, restaurants, retail shops and manufacturers, including the international headquarters of the Braun Corporation.
