Calfee Athletic Field has been a Pulaski County landmark since its construction in 1935. Although the Great Depression greatly affected Pulaski County, construction of the ballpark was made possible by a grant from the Works Progress Administration. The field, located in the southern section of the town of Pulaski, has been used for various community events over the years, including high school football games, horse shows, and carnivals, but it is perhaps best remembered as the home of the Pulaski Counts, a minor league baseball team that began attracting large crowds soon after the park opened. With its medieval-styled, stone-fronted entranceway and steel-canopied grandstand, Calfee Field has retained its historic charm as a small-town ballpark.
