Liberty Hill, TX – Williamson County

Population 1,608 // Official Website // Schools

Liberty Hill is located 29 miles northwest of Austin in Williamson County, between the north and south forks of the San Gabriel River. Settlers first began arriving in the 1840’s, and by 1853, a post office was opened about 3 miles from the current town. The town’s name of Liberty Hill was suggested by the appointed postmaster, William Oliver Spencer. Due to several relocations of a nearby stage stop and the post office, the settlement moved east twice between the 1850’s and 1882. At that point, being bypassed by the railroad caused the town to shift its location yet again. The area’s school enrollment far surpassed its population, which has remained small throughout the years

Liberty Hill has two main newspapers, The Liberty Hill Independent and The Liberty Hill Leader. The local schools are considered excellent academically. The sports program is also a source of pride; the Liberty Hill High School football team won the Texas Football State Championship in 3A Division II against Celina in 2006 and in 3A Division I against Gilmer in 2007.

The town’s crown jewel, the Liberty Hill International Sculpture Park, was created when the city hosted an International Sculpture Symposium in 1976 in honor of the nation’s Bicentennial. Twenty internationally recognized sculptors from around the world came to Liberty Hill, where they spent two months creating 26 massive pieces made from bronze, granite, limestone and concrete. This park changed the face of the town and had a profound effect on the people of this small, rural community.
