Liberty Point

  • Overview

    Hours: Daily before dusk. Exterior view only.

    On March 4, 1825, as Lafayette was being escorted into town from the Clarendon Bridge, he passed by Liberty Point. This location is not only a locally cherished historical area but also a vestige of early street patterns with its notable triangular plot. Near this site in June 1775, a group of 55 patriots signed a document of freedom one year before the Declaration of Independence was signed, popularly known as the Liberty Point Resolves. A granite boulder commemorates their pledge to their country as well lists the names of the 55 signers. The bronze marker is located near the granite boulder.
