Story Ideas

Liberty County has a rich history dating back to its founding in 1777. We are happy to arrange tours and itineraries for travel writers, photographers and film scouts. Call 912-368-3580 for more information.

Colonial, Revolutionary War and Civil War History: The Midway Museum, Congregational Church and adjacent Cemetery provide the history of Liberty County’s earliest and most famous residents. You’ll also find Fort Morris, a Revolutionary War fort, which is now a historic state park. The earth work remains of the fort are intact and visitors can view an impressive panorama of St. Catherines sound and St. Catherines Island, which has changed very little over the last few hundred years.

Nature and Outdoor Sports: There are plenty of spots that allow nature lovers to take in the beautiful scenery. Hunting and fishing are year-round activities. For bird watchers, Fort Morris State Historic Site, which is part of the Colonial Coast Birding Trail, is an excellent location for spotting numerous bird species. Cay Creek Wetlands Interpretive Center provides a unique outdoor location encompassing six ecosystems.

Black History: Liberty County is home to the Historic Dorchester Academy, named as a National Historic Landmark in 2006, for its significance in the Civil Rights Movement. Martin Luther King, Jr. considered Dorchester Academy a place of respite while planning “Project C.”  The Geechee Kunda Cultural Center  is dedicated to the preservation and celebration of the Gullah-Geechee culture and heritage. Seabrook Village, a living history museum reflects the way of life of some of Liberty County’s first freed slaves.
