The Liberty Tree



Under the boughs of the original Liberty Tree in Boston in 1765, patriots, calling themselves “The Sons of Liberty,” gathered to protest the imposition of the Stamp Act. In the years that followed, almost every American town had a Liberty Tree – a living symbol of the American Freedom of Speech and Assembly.

Our Liberty Tree is a southern live oak Quercus Virginiana, more than 100 years old.
