If you've never been, you should visit. Here's a description from their website (http://www.jonesport-wood.com/libertytool.html): "The Liberty Tool Company consists of a four story balloon framed building built circa 1885. Until the Liberty Village General Store was constructed across the street in 1891 (it is six inches higher than the Liberty Tool Company), this building was the largest wooden structure between Belfast and Augusta. In the old days, Liberty, Maine, was a main overnight stagecoach stop with a number of hotels, canneries, foundries and other enterprises. The Liberty Tool Co. building was a general store with a rooming house on the second floor and a dance hall on the third floor. All these floors, as well as the cellar, are now utilized for the sale of old tools, hardware, antiques, trunks, used furniture, prints, postcards, books, magazines, records, glassware, pottery, toys, collectibles and any other interesting artifacts we can salvage from estate lots throughout New England. Our tool annex is located across the street in the former Banks' Garage."2018-05-22 Liberty Tool Company, photographed by Deanna Wolfire. If you've never been, you should visit.
