LI BERTY S E T T LE m EnT

During the unprecedented wave of westward migration in the early 19th century, farmers, fur-traders and land speculators were attracted to the less expensive, unclaimed lands of the nation’s westernmost frontier. Access to northwestern Missouri was possible for migrants from Virginia, Kentucky and Tennessee thanks to the availability of transportation on the Mississippi and Missouri rivers. The first steamboat passed up the Missouri River in 1819 and by 1820 the arrival of settlers had begun in earnest. In 1822, commissioners of the newly-formed Clay County searched for an appropriate spot for the county seat of justice. After three days of examining sites for a town, they recommended the 50 acres donated by John Owens and Charles McGee, which offered sufficient elevation, access to safe drinking water, and proximity to the river without influence of stagnant waters. The town was called “Liberty,” inspired by the patriotic fervor of the time. Settlers went about creating a civilization in the wilderness. The public square was cleared of timber in 1822. On the west side, a well was dug, and the first log residences were built in the first block north of the square on Water Street. Until 1826, there were about a dozen log cabins in Liberty and about 75 citizens. When Fort Leavenworth was established in 1827, the town grew quickly. The Fort relied on the farmers and merchants of Liberty and the surrounding area to provide construction materials, labor, supplies and other necessities for the military base and its personnel. Liberty was incorporated as a town in 1829, and was granted its first charter in 1851. The town encompassed one square mile, with the courthouse as the physical center.

Before integration and the passing of civil rights laws, living in a segregated community forced Liberty blacks to provide small, home-owned “mom and pop” restaurants, entertainment, and community services for its residents who lived mainly on streets in the old north end of town. The Clay County African American Consortium, a community-based organization, began a grass-roots effort in 2000 as part of the Kansas City 150th Sesquicentennial to help preserve the black history of the city and county. After a brick–paver fundraiser, it dedicated a $40,000 Freedom Fountain in June on the lawn of the old courthouse Square. In 2003 it

our state, Clay County was populated by a mixture of people with northern and southern roots and loyalties. Frank and Jesse James, destined to become the county’s most infamous residents, were growing up here during that time. The Civil War officially began April 12, 1861. Eight days later it came to Missouri when Henry Routt of Liberty led a bloodless two-week-long raid on the Federal Arsenal south of town. A few weeks later, Frank James, 18, joined the Confederate Missouri State Guard. His unit was involved in several battles including Wilson’s Creek. In September, the Battle of Blue Mills was fought south of Liberty when Federal forces were ambushed by Southerners and driven back to William Jewell College, which was used as a burial ground and hospital. Frank was arrested twice in 1862 for disloyalty, escaped from the Liberty jail and had to forfeit his $1,000. By 1863 he became a rebel guerrilla riding with a Liberty man named Fernando (or Ferdinand) Scott under William Clarke Quantrill. In May 1863 the guerrillas raided Richfield (Missouri City). Also in May, a Union militia group went to the James farm, roughed up Jesse, his

The City of Liberty and Clay County have long and remarkable histories dating back to 1822 and before. From the fur trappers arriving in the 18th century and trading posts soon thereafter, this area was settled by courageous pioneers who braved the harsh elements, wild animals, etc. Believe it or not, there are still records of some of these initial exploits and records of our personal and communal history continue to amass to this day. Even the most recent records will be important to someone someday. Established in 1979, it has since accumulated hundreds of thousands of records,

Liberty’s longstanding commitment to the Arts dates back for years. In 2006, the city took steps to ensure that tradition lives on when it created the Liberty Arts Commission to plan and promote the artistic and cultural development of the City, and to encourage the community’s awareness of and participation in the arts. It coordinates regular exhibits of local artists at Liberty City Hall, 101 E. Kansas, and at Northwest Missouri State University’s Liberty campus, 8 Victory Drive, 3rd floor. It also sponsors the “Art Car,” a vehicle painted by artists of all ages at the Liberty Fall Festival. The Commission also maintains an arts calendar of events on the city’s website and co-sponsors the annual Liberty Arts Squared Festival in June.

The Liberty Arts Foundation is an outgrowth of the Liberty Arts Commission, but is a separate, private, charitable organization committed to supporting all art related endeavors that benefit Liberty citizens. As funding becomes available through private donations and grants, the Foundation will support the projects of the Arts Commission, the Liberty Symphony, the Community Chorus, Corbin Theater and other arts focused organizations and individuals.

A series of murals adorn Historic Downtown Liberty, featuring the area’s local history and heritage: Lewis & clark mural: This mural commemorates the 200th anniversary of the Lewis and Clark expedition. It depicts the Corps of Discovery’s landing along the banks of the Missouri River, just south of presentday Liberty. During a respite from their journey on June 25, 1804, the adventurers harvested game, set up camp, and explored this area we now know as Clay County. The mural was painted by local artist David McClain. Justice center mural, South Water Street: This series of ceramic murals was completed following the construction of the new justice center and public safety building in 1984. The Clay County Fine Arts Council raised private funds to commission this series by the late Matthew Monks, a Kansas City artist and instructor at the Kansas City Art Institute. The ceramic tiles were crafted by Ron Taylor, a potter from Sugar Creek Missouri. Each of the scenes depicts an aspect of Clay County’s history. Liberty, The Heritage Years: Located in the Council Chambers, this mural was dedicated in 1983, following the completion of the new City Hall. It was painted by muralist Eric J.

William Jewell College, founded in 1849, is a private liberal-arts college with approximately 1,100 undergraduate students. William Jewell College promises students an outstanding liberal arts education that cultivates leadership, service, and spiritual growth within a community inspired by Christian ideals and committed to open, rigorous intellectual pursuits. Jewell has been ranked among America’s Best colleges by numerous national magazines including The Princeton Review, US News & World Report, Forbes Magazine and Kiplinger’s Personal Finance. The school offers more than 30 diverse majors in addition to numerous graduate programs. The flagship program at the College is the Oxbridge Honors Program, where students take one-on-one tutorials with faculty tutors and spend their junior year at Cambridge or Oxford. It is the only program of its kind in the nation.

charter which created one of the first private, four-year men’s college west of the Mississippi. In addition to Jewell and Mexican War hero Alexander Doniphan, one of the founding members of the Board of Trustees was Rev. Robert James, a nearby Baptist minister and father of Frank and Jesse James. Throughout the Civil War, most in Clay County sympathized with the South, as many residents had migrated from Virginia through Kentucky. The campus was twice occupied by Federal troops. With Union soldiers surveying the town from the high vantage point of Jewell Hall on the college hill, Liberty was Union by day. But under darkness of night, illegal trading occurred throughout the town to help the Southern cause. From 1873 to 1892, the College’s financial fortunes improved with higher enrollment and expanded facilities. Jewell built the first, separate college gymnasium building west of the Mississippi in 1896. Baseball began here in 1883 and football in 1888. The first intercollegiate basketball game in the state of Missouri was played here in 1899 against the University of Kansas, coached by James Naismith the inventor of basketball. At that time, Jewell’s main athletic rivals were KU and the University of Missouri.

MidAmerica Nazarene University opened its Liberty location in 2009 for its Graduate and Adult Studies programs. Located on the second floor of the M&I Bank Building at Interstate 35 and 152 Highway, MNU Liberty currently offers degree-completion programs in nursing and business, as well as a Master of Arts in counseling and a Master of Science in nursing, and short-term undergraduate courses. Founded in Olathe, Kan., in 1966, MNU is a private, Christian, liberal arts university. All Liberty-campus programs are accelerated and most require class just one night a week (or day for nursing programs). The Master of Science in nursing, the RN-BSN and the management and human relations degree programs can be completed in one year. “Adults find our format extremely convenient,” said Liberty site director Steve Longley. “They tell me they appreciate the adult-friendly schedule and the way professors treat students like colleagues.” While MNU’s Liberty presence is relatively new, the university has been offering accelerated programs for adults at its Olathe, Kan. campus since 1987. MNU offers 40 undergraduate majors and three adult degree completion programs, as well as five professional graduate degrees in business, education, nursing, and counseling, and post-graduate certificates.

resources and technology genealogists need to research. The Liberty Branch of MCPL is located at 1000 Kent Street. A new Woodneath branch is under construction in the Shoal Creek area of Kansas City in the greater Liberty area. The Shoal Creek area is one of the fastest growing places in the MCPL service area. In fact, the Liberty Branch has recently become the busiest branch in the entire library system. Anticipating this growth, MCPL purchased a 30-acre Antebellum farm on Flintlock Road in 2008 to build a Woodneath Branch. The Library believes the property provides an opportunity to combine a commitment to history with a desire to see growth in the future of the northland. The new library will incorporate the 1850’s home with a 21st century library. The project’s architect has experience balancing historical interests and modern needs, and has created a solution for Woodneath that does just that. The new library at Woodneath will be the most advanced in the MCPL system. New technology will be integrated into the building, and public space will be a focus of the library. MCPL also intends to build the library to LEED specifications. Visit www.mymcpl.org for more information.

E ar n est S hepherd Y outh Center

For 50 years, the Earnest Shepherd Youth Center has been fostering character development through educational and teambuilding activities for school-age youth on 62 acres of woods, meadows and creeks. The center, located north of Kansas City a short distance off Interstate 35 in Liberty, serves the entire metro area and prides itself in making memories with creative summer camps and “helping youth help themselves” through service. In 1962, a group of Clay County citizens created the center to serve all area youth and provide a permanent location of the 4-H County Fair. Philanthropist Edna Shepherd donated the land to serve the youth in memory of her late husband, Earnest Shepherd. Over the years, the facilities, campsites and trails have evolved through the hard work of many generous and talented volunteers and organizations. In the mid 1970s, an administrative cooperative agreement was established with the University of Missouri Extension Services. This agreement provides part-time administrative expertise and support in working with the youth center staff.

Liberty Hospital is truly a regional medical center serving Clay and Platte counties, as well as the northwest Missouri corridor – all the way up to the Iowa border. Much like the area around it, Liberty Hospital has grown by leaps and bounds since it opened its doors in February 1974. What started as a 130-bed facility has now grown to 250 licensed beds and more than 1,900 employees. The public, non-profit hospital has nearly 300 physicians that cover nearly all specialties practice medicine at the hospital. It’s commitment to the most up-to-date technology is evident. Liberty hospital was one the first hospitals to invest in the da Vinci robot, a surgical device that is used to assist with prostatectomies and hysterectomies – allowing for better outcomes for the patient. It has the latest MRI technology and a new hybrid catheterization lab/ operating room. It has a birthing center that includes a Level II Neonatal Intensive Care

that allows medical teams to care of newborns with a wide variety of special care needs, allowing mother and baby to stay in the same hospital. But technology would be nothing without the people who use it. The staff and physicians at Liberty Hospital are second to none. Liberty Hospital has some of the highest patient satisfaction scores in the area. Learn more about the hospital at www. libertyhospital.org. To contact the hospital, call 816-781-7200. In case of a medical emergency, call 911.

Clay Cou n ty P ubli c Health Center

The Clay County Public Health Center’s mission is to “deliver the essential public health services of prevention, promotion and protection to the communities of Clay County.” For more than 50 years, it has been caring for Clay County citizens, now reaching 220,000 residents in Liberty and neighboring cities. This community approach to wellness is accomplished through programs and services that prevent the spread of disease as well as provide people with the knowledge they need to make healthy choices. The health care professionals on staff are able to keep pace with evolving health trends with their diverse education and experience from both the public and private sectors, and through ongoing training. As Clay County’s health department, the center offers a variety of health education, disease prevention and treatment services, all with the goal of promoting good health in the community. Many services are available to the general public, while others are based on income guidelines to meet the needs of the uninsured, underinsured and Medicaid recipients. The Clay County Public Health Center has expanded its facilities and programs as the population it serves has boomed. In the fall of 2007, the department moved to 800 Haines Drive in Liberty, its third location since opening 50 years ago.
