October 25th marked a special day for the Liberty Township Historical Society and Liberty Township, two entities embarking on a new partnership. The Historical Society will be utilizing the Township's former Fiscal Office at 6361 Princeton Road to display and house historical items as well as hold community meetings. The new partnership gives the Liberty Township Historical Society dedicated space to expand their reach in the community.
The former Fiscal Office was built in the 1890s in the community known as Hughes Station. It's presumed to have been built there due to its central location and proximity to the railroad. In the early days, it served as the community's voting hall. It later became the Liberty Township Town Hall where public meetings were held for years until the Township purchased the property across the street. For the last 20 years, it has served as the Township Fiscal Office.
