Liverpool

Liverpool Post OfficeLiverpool Post OfficeFormerly the site of a 2000 year old Indian village and burial mound group, the Village of Liverpool was founded in 1836. Shortly after 1850 a plank road was built, connecting Liverpool to the manufacturers in Canton. As the railroads captured a larger share of what had once been river commerce, Liverpool’s importance diminished. However, a thriving fishing and hunting industry provided several decades of relative prosperity in the late 1800s and early 1900s.

By 1920, the levee construction and drainage of wetlands and backwater lakes transformed the floodplain into row-crop agriculture. Liverpool still offers river access for sport and recreation. A boat ramp, parking lot, and levee top walking trail, offer a range of activities.

Travel services include a auto alignment shop.
