History

 

 

 

 


West Liberty was incorporated in 1868. The town was located at the junction of the Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific and Burlington, Cedar Rapids and Northern Railroads. Prior to incorporation the town stood about half a mile north of where it is currently located but it was relocated in order to be closer to the railway. The settlement was originally known as Wapsinonoc Township, which means smooth surfaced, meandering creek or stream. The changing of the name to Liberty (after the town of Liberty, Ohio, the former home of many of the new settlers) is attributed to the wife of the township's first postmaster, Simeon A. Bagley. It is believed that the town came to be known as West Liberty after it was relocated, possibly influenced by a town west of Liberty, Ohio that was named West Liberty, Ohio

West Liberty is a historical town with many annual events. West Liberty is home to its own historical movie theater which was built in 1910, a puppet theater that hosts several events throughout the year and gives frequent performances, two dance studios, an arts council which organizes community art lessons during the winter months and concerts during the summer, and various local artists. West Liberty has a historical downtow, a train depot that was built in 1897, and a public library, constructed in 1904. West Liberty is home to the Muscatine County Fairgrounds where it hosts the Muscatine County Fair, West Liberty's biggest annual event.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Festivals and events

 

 

 

 


The city's biggest event, the Muscatine County Fair is held every year in July. The fair features grandstand entertainment, a carnival, a talent show, a fair queen contest, pet shows, and judging of various exhibits in the categories of livestock, arts and crafts, cooking, flowers and plants, photography, and antiques. The fair is held in the historical Muscatine County Fairgrounds. More than half of the buildings are original, an exceptionally large number compared to other fairgrounds.

Before the fair begins, every year West Liberty holds the Fair Parade followed by Picnic in the Park. Held the Sunday immediately preceding the fair, the Fair Parade features floats made by the community in keeping with that year's theme. The parade winds through town and is immediately followed by the Picnic in the Park. The Picnic in the Park is held in Kimberly Park and features a free swim, food sold by local vendors, and entertainment.

Another annual summertime event is Summer Music in the Park. This summer concert series is organized by WLAAC (West Liberty Area Arts Council) and is free to the public. Every Friday evening for about a month in the summer a concert is given by local groups in Ron-de-Voo Park. Music styles range from blues to classic rock to Latin American folk music.

The Children's Festival is held every year in September. A daylong event held downtown on Third Street, it comprises puppet shows (some performed by the local Eulenspiegel Puppet Theatre), crafts, activities, strolling performers, performances from the local dance studios, food from local vendors, and more. The various performances and puppet shows are given by both local and out of state performers.

In the months of April through August the West Liberty Raceway hosts races nearly every Saturday night. According to their website, the raceway is a "large 1/2 mile, slightly banked, dirt track". The IMCA Sport Compact, iWireless IMCA Late Models, and Performance Concepts are hosted at the raceway.

 

 

 

 

 

Museum

 

 

 


The historical Rock Island Depot, built in 1897, now serves as a museum. It contains displays full of artifacts pertaining to the history of West Liberty and the history of the railway. Heritage Park, or the Depot Campus as it is more commonly known, serves as a museum of sorts as well. This area immediately surrounding the depot has become the final resting place for many local pieces of history. There is a restored Rock Island Lines Caboose being displayed there, a local barn now known as the Heritage Barn has been relocated here along with several pieces of antique farm equipment displayed in and around the barn, a tourist cabin that used to form part of the North Point complex, which in addition to the nine cabins also consisted of a diner and a service station, a one-room schoolhouse, also known as the Swamp School, was likewise moved to the depot campus, and the newest addition, a steam locomotive now permanently rests in Heritage Park.

 

 

 

 

 

Library

 

 

 

 


The West Liberty Public Library building was constructed in 1904 with the help of a $7500 grant from Andrew Carnegie. However, before the existence of the current building, the library can be traced back to its beginning as a temperance library. After the Reading Room was closed, seven women continued circulating the books until they left the handling of the library to the Peoples Library Association 5 years later. The association opened a reading room and later, in the year 1900, the community voted to approve the establishment of a public library. The West Liberty Public Library building is listed as a State Historical Building and has been renovated and expanded various times over the years with the latest repairs and renovations occurring in 2012-2013. The library holds a host of activities throughout the year includingsummer reading programs, screenings of educational movies, toddler story times, a morning coffee book club, and much more.

 

 

 

 

 

Parks and recreation

 

 

 


There are a total of eight city parks scattered throughout West Liberty, varying in size and purpose from a veterans memorial to a public poolto a sports complex complete with softball and baseball diamonds, soccer fields, a skatepark, and more. The city parks are as follows:

In addition to the eight city parks, West Liberty maintains a portion of the Hoover Nature Trail. The renovated portion of the trail in West Liberty starts at the depot and continues north until it reaches Highway 6. Just a short distance after the depot campus ends there is an outdoor fitness center. It contains various pieces of workout equipment available for public use.

West Liberty is home to the West Liberty Golf & Country Club, a country club which features a nine-hole golf course and a restaurant. The country club hosts a variety of events, including tournaments.

The West Liberty Gun Club is a shooting range located on the southwest edge of town. It features an outdoor range, an archery range, and a trap range. It holds matches for anyone from beginners to more experienced shooters. The club has about 150 members
