Centennial History Walk Kicks Off Friday

North Liberty may be a young community in terms of census demographics, but the town does have some cool history to showcase. North Liberty’s Centennial Committee will celebrate 100 years of North Liberty with the city’s History Walk, sponsored by The Home Repair Team, on Friday, June 7, 2013 at 6:00 p.m. The walk will start at Caryl Lyons’ home, 210 N. George Street, where the city’s only carousel was once located.

“As we started poking around, we found so many interesting, hidden bits of history,” said Tracey Mulcahey, chair of the Centennial Committee. “We’re excited to share these finds with the community.”

The kickoff will feature remarks from a selection of community members and the unveiling of the History Walk’s route.   A group walk is scheduled for about 6:15, starting at Lyon’s home. Parking is available on the streets in the neighborhood. After the kickoff, the route will be available online at northliberty100.org/tour and in a paper format at City Hall and the Community Center. Yard signs with additional information will remain up for the summer for the community to share in the rich history North Liberty has to offer.
