The home of the Orcoquisac Indians. An East - West trail across the region traveled by Alonso De Leon in 1690 became the "La Bahia" or "Lower Road" of the 18th century and the Opelousas Road of the 19th. At the point this road crossed the Trinity the Spaniards made the first settlement, Atascosito, about 1758. Napoleonic exiles sought refuge here in 1818, Anglo-Americans came, 1821 - 1830. The town, established May 5, 1831, as the "Villa de la Santisima Trinidad de la Libertad" (City of the Blessed Trinity of Liberty) gave its name to the municipality and to the county created in 1836. Liberty County in 1837 included all of Tyler and parts of Hardin, Chambers, San Jacinto and Polk counties. The town of Liberty, incorporated June 7, 1837, has remained the county seat.
