North Liberty home is history in the making

NORTH LIBERTY– In 1908, scientists were just beginning to consider the possibilities of atomic energy, and the world had just witnessed its first passenger air flight. It was the year of Ford’s first Model T, the nation’s first celebration of Mother’s Day, and the first home of its kind built in North Liberty, the Samuel Ranshaw house.
The old home on the corner of Penn Street and Community Drive in North Liberty, vacant and sleeping largely undisturbed since 2005, is being revived for a new generation of the town’s population.

Rules of thumb

NORTH LIBERTY– No cell phones. No speaking out of turn. No changing your mind once an ordinance is passed.
The North Liberty City Council has unanimously adopted an official set of rules outlining duties, procedures and public participation for the council’s monthly meetings.
