Welcome to Liberty County Florida

Here, residents can swim in the lakes and rivers that border our county or cast a fishing line. Families can hike or bike the Florida trail to wind down and disconnect. In Liberty County, creeks that carried the canoes of Indians curl quietly through untouched woodlands. Our school children race around the globe on web-wired computers and when the bell rings, they race their bicycles home through quiet neighborhoods.

Liberty County is a fascinating portrait of the old South and the new, of comforting tradition and of well-planned progress.

Our visionary leaders preserved what is best about our community, while carefully managing incredible growth and preparing for this new century with futuristic schools, technology and infrastructures. Welcome to Liberty County!
