Stop 03: Liberty Point

  • Overview

    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.

    Hours: Daily before dusk, exterior view only.

    Next Stop: Continue on Person Street until you reach the roundabout. The Town House (present-day Market House) is located directly in front of you in the center.

    Proceed to this trail’s next stop or return to trail overview.
