Originally inhabited by Native Americans, the Homestead Act of 1862 encouraged settlers to the area for free government land. Liberty Lake was named after a French Canadian mail carrier, Stephen Liberty in 1871, officially incorporated much later in 2001. Once known as ?Spokane's Inland Seashore,? the area was set apart by its natural beauty and recreational attractions. In the 1970s, the inception of Holiday Hill on the west side of the city has hosted camping, skiing, skating motocross training and sports camps. Since the early 1990s, Liberty Lake has experienced a housing development boom with the creation of area golf courses.
The nearby commercial center of Spokane has something for everyone from recreational attractions of the secluded mountain trails and pristine lakes and rivers to bustling shopping centers, Broadway performances, museums, amusement parks and water fun centers. Explore Riverfront Park, located on two islands divided by the cascading Spokane River and Spokane Falls. Attractions include an IMAX Theater, an amusement park and a hand-carved 1909 carousel.
