Liberty History

Liberty, which is among the oldest towns of Texas, was settled by illegal immigrants from newly independent Mexico in 1822. These immigrants settled in an area called Atascosito which was near the Trinity River. In 1831, it was officially established as municipality named 'Villa de la Sant’sima Trinidad de la Libertad' when a land commissioner Jo’s Francisco Madero granted 36 land titles under the Mexican law. Later this region became a county seat and was incorporated in the mid 19th century. In the following years, oil was discovered in the region and development followed in the form of cotton and grain mills.
