Liberty is a ghost town in San Joaquin County, in the U.S. state of California.

History[edit]

Liberty was established in 1852.[1] A post office was opened at Liberty in 1860, and remained in operation until 1874.[2] With the construction of the railroad in the late 1860s, business activity shifted to nearby Galt, and the town's population dwindled.[1] The Liberty cemetery, East of highway 99 at Liberty Road is now cared for by the Galt Historical Society.
