The Liberty Township Historical Society was formed by a group of residents with an interest in preserving and restoring the Hughes One-room Schoolhouse, which was built in 1887 and used until 1922. The brick structure on Princeton Road adjacent to Liberty Elementary School was falling into disrepair and was destined for demolition. The research, design, and funding, as well as the labor, were the society’s primary mission for many years. Upon completion of the restoration the group was successful in having the school placed on the National Registry of Historic Places on on Jan. 2, 1976. A committee of the organization created a commemorative quilt depicting historic persons, places, and events significant to Liberty Township and is currently on display at the township’s administrative offices. Several members have also been active in the restoration and documentation of local cemeteries. A goal of The Liberty Twp. Historical Society is to ultimately create a local museum. This would serve as a site to collect, preserve and display items, photographs, etc. of local interest. They are currently interested in accepting photographs and memorabilia or at the least electronically scanning such items. Another current project includes video taping area residents as they relate their personal history, local folklore, stories and anecdotes. The Liberty Township Historical Society meets at the Hughes School on Princeton Rd at 7:00 PM each Month on the second Thursday. The school is available for tours by appointment.
