One of the most walk-able historic areas in mid-America includes 240 preserved homes and buildings built more than 100 years ago. Self guided walking tours, unique shops and restaurants, 3 museums, and one of the finest liberal arts colleges in America, make the area interesting and entertaining. A spring arts festival, a fall festival and a farmers market that runs from May to October are annual events fun for the entire family. Plan to stay in one of our charming bed and breakfasts and come visit us soon.

Cute college town area with lots of restaurants, wish the shopping was a little better. The Events And Farmer's Market Make Up For it. Many historic sites close by as well help.

it is great to walk around the square in Liberty. New dining areas, shopping, local sporting goods store, tea shops and great unique gifts to buy. Very family oriented area.

My office is just a block from here. Never understood this designation. It is just a typical town square courthouse (which is no longer a courthouse, but now has administrative offices) surrounded by some restaurants and small shops. Nothing special about it in my opinion.

We enjoyed visiting and exploring this beautiful little town. While we were there, they had a BBQ festival going on and there was plenty to see, smell, and taste. Seems like it would be a wonderful place to live.

While better than most the Liberty Square still stuggles to attract and keep businesses. Unlike some Historic Districts in some states like Michigan, I do not believe our Liberty's Historic District receives any Tax funding for beautification of sidewalks and public space. Foot traffic is...More
