The city of Liberty, South Carolina is in Pickens County, was chartered in 1876. In 1753, the colonists built Fort Prince George. During the Revolutionary War, the local Cherokee supported the tories. As a result, the South Carolinians forced them to give up most of their local territory in 1777, with the Treaty of DeWit’s Corner. American settlers began to migrate to town during the 1780s. The town was originally called Liberty Spring and was home to subsistence farmers. The roads were too bad to do much more with the fruits of their work. The economy took an upturn in the early 1870s when the Charlotte-Atlanta Airline Railway ran tracks through Liberty.
