Liberty in Liberty County, Texas — The American South (West South Central)
Liberty Methodist Church
Members worshiped at the Courthouse, in home or brush arbors until 1846, when they built a log church. After it was destroyed by a storm, the congregation moved to its present location and built a one-room frame structure in 1854. The church acquired a bell in 1873 from the steamboat "Black Cloud", which sank in the Trinity River. This bell is still in use. In 1904 a new two-room frame edifice was constructed. It was replaced in 1930 by a two-story brick structure, which became an education building after a new sanctuary was erected in 1953.
This congregation participates in many community events, including the "Brotherhood Banquet", sponsored by the men's Bible class
Erected 1977 by Texas Historical Commission. (Marker Number 9673.)
