Mercantile at Liberty, WV
Liberty (map), in northern Putnam County, is an unincorporated rural community, though formerly a small village. A former Esso garage, a large country store, and an oddly towered frame house are the most obvious remains of what was formerly a thriving town along a lumber railroad.

Fisher Ridge Winery is located on Fisher Ridge Road, NW of Liberty, and is open year-round for tours and tasting. Many farms follow WV-34, a popular scenic motor-route, through Liberty. Liberty is located between Red House, WV, on the lower Kanawha River, and Interstate 77 (I-77) near Kenna, WV. Liberty is situated on Painters Branch, a tributary of Eighteenmile Creek, northwest of Fisher Knob (elev. 1,100 ft.). Liberty is a popular retirement community and is part of the Charleston, WV, market area.
