Pulaski Mennonite Church (General Conference Mennonite Church), located 3 miles southwest of Pulaski, Davis County, Iowa, a member of the Middle District Conference, was organized in 1861. Christ Kropf and Christ Sharp from Indiana were the first preachers for the group, which was made up of Mennonite settlers from Canada, Ohio, Illinois, and Indiana. Meetings were held in homes and schools until the first church was erected in 1866. The second was dedicated in 1885, with ex­tensive remodeling in 1914. Among those who have served were two pastors, Philip Roulet from Ohio and W. W. Miller from Indiana, whose two terms totaled more than 60 years. The pastor in 1958 was Kenneth Shelly, from Pennsylvania, with a membership of 154, mostly rural.
