Liberty, Amite County, Mississippi, 1891

Liberty, the seat of justice of Amite County, has a population of four hundred and twenty-six. It is a handsome village and has always supported and encouraged schools. Its college hall was burned by Federal soldiers during their occupancy of the town in 1863. The buildings that were spared were later acquired by Prof. C. F. Manales, a native Amite countian and an educator of successful experience.

Other towns in the county are Gloster and Gilliaburg. The educational institutions at Bast Fork and Ebenegon are liberally patronized.
