The freshly planted flowers surrounding the bases of Liberty's welcome signs are a sure indication you're in for a family-friendly experience in this urban township.
With 17 mines operating at the same time in the late 19th century, the township served as a coal mining hub and drew residents and workers from all over. That sparked the growth of a supportive and engaged community that even acted as a stop for escaped slaves on the Underground Railroad. The haystacks at Samuel Goist’s farm nurtured his livestock and provided a safe hiding place, too.
Today, Liberty’s diverse population and variety of local businesses make it a special place to visit. A mix of chain and locally owned restaurants, such as Nonni's Ristorante, Kravitz Delicatessen and Station Square, keep diners full.
Outdoor spaces and recreational facilities such as Liberty Center Park draw families for outdoor fun. Music enthusiasts and thrill seekers enjoy the park’s performance venue and skate park.
With easy access to St. Rte. 11 and I-80, and a number of hotel chains within the township's limits, Liberty is an easily accessible and a great base station for Trumbull County excursions.
