North Liberty Celebrates 100 Years
NORTH LIBERTY, Iowa - North Liberty has officially hit the century mark.The city was incorporated on November 10, 1913.
The city has come a long way over the past 100 years.It grew quickly from a population of just a few hundred to today's population of more than 14,000. Streets Superintendent Don Colony says four generations of his family have lived in North Liberty. He says he remembers when only two flashing lights sat on Highway 965. The streets superintendent says now there's about a dozen stop lights in town.
"We went from four miles to seventy-four miles of streets, so with the population growth comes streets, restaurants, banks and it's just a great community," North Liberty Streets Superintendent Don Colony said.
The city has been holding birthday events all year, but the final celebration will unfold Saturday, November 16.
