Your Guide to Liberty County’s Most Unique Selfie Spots
Don’t you just love happy accidents? Last year, we shared the Best Places to Snap Fall Pics. That blog then inspired us to write about our 10 Most Instagrammable Eateries, which was followed by our 6 Most Instagrammable Spots in Liberty County blog.
The result? We’ve inadvertently created a whole series of places to selfie in Liberty County, y’all!
After much consideration and us exploring Liberty (insert shameless plug here), we realized that not only does Liberty County have picture perfect scenery and restaurants, but we have a ton of unique, selfie worthy locations in our coastal community! Here is our guide to Liberty County’s most unique selfie spots!
ITPA Telephone Museum
The ITPA Telephone Museum is a really awesome place to tour because 1) it’s an interactive museum and 2) it’s home to a huge collection of cool telephones from throughout history! Seriously…a lot of telephones live there. Models as early as Alexander Graham Bell and as late as the themed landlines from the early 2000’s! There’s also a really cool wall of telephones that make for great selfies as well as a vintage red telephone booth!
St. Catherines Sound at Fort Morris State Historic Site
Next on our list is Fort Morris State Historic Site. Located in coastal Sunbury, this fort was built to protect the seaport town of Sunbury against the British in the late 1700s. After seeing a great deal of action from numerous wars, Fort Morris finally fell into despair and was in ruins by 1812.
This site has one of the most stunning views of our coast line and of St. Catherines Sound. Most locals head out to Fort Morris to capture that golden hour selfie while the coastal wind blows through their hair. We personally like to take selfies with ranger Jason when he dresses up for tours!
Cay Creek Wetlands Interpretive Center
One of our more well-known nature trails is Cay Creek Wetlands Interpretive Center. This elevated boardwalk stretches 7/10ths of a mile over tidal, freshwater wetlands. Toward the beginning of the boardwalk is a 15-foot tower that overlooks the wetland! Snap a selfie above the trees or walk to the end of the boardwalk to snap a selfie by the water. Just look at how happy baby T is by the water, and he didn’t even have to make that 7/10ths of a mile trek!
Behind the Bars at the Old Liberty County Jail
Get a cool jail pic without actually committing a crime at the Old Liberty County Jail! Want to pretend you’re behind bars or that you know someone ‘on the inside’? Leave this selfie on your feed with no context and watch your engagement rise!
Fun Facts: The Old Liberty County Jail was built in October 1892 and was in use until 1970. Despite all of the security measures installed, one local man escaped from the jail FIVE times! The jail was auctioned off and purchased by the Liberty County Historical Society in the 70s for about $4,500. We recommend scheduling a tour to hear all about the Old Liberty County Jail happenings.
Snag a selfie with a Tree Spirit
Have y’all heard about our Tree Spirits? No one knows who keeps carving these faces in the trees on Barrington Ferry Road, but they do make for a unique county-wide mystery! Snap your selfie with one (or all) of our Tree Spirits to pique your followers’ interests! Let us know when you find the elusive fourth one; we have yet to locate it!
World’s Largest Crayon
Yes, you read that right! The Keep Liberty Beautiful building homes our Guinness World Record breaking crayon. Measured at 9ft 8in and weighing 605.5-pounds, our Liberty crayon held the world record for world’s largest crayon back in 2009! Who doesn’t want a cool selfie in front of a giant crayon?
We highly encourage y’all to #exploreliberty. There is so much to our coastal community than dirt roads and sunsets (which, hey, we aren’t complaining)! Make sure you tag us in your Liberty County selfies or use our hashtag for a chance to be featured on our social media.
