Founded in 1822 and named for the principle that Americans hold most dear, Historic Downtown Liberty, Missouri exudes an ambiance of yesteryear balanced on the edge of an exciting, vibrant future. The first settlers arrived in the Liberty area in 1819, attracted by an excellent water supply, well-timbered hills, and proximity to the Missouri River, the early transportation route of U.S. westward expansion. The town was chosen as the seat of Clay County in 1822. Liberty incorporated as a city in 1829 and is the second oldest incorporated town west of the Mississippi River.
