Florida: Liberty County

Liberty County (pop. 8,365), north of Franklin County, is Florida’s least-populous county.

The county is bordered on the west by the Apalachicola River and on the east by the Ochlockonee River.

About half of Liberty County is in the 600,000-acre Apalachicola National Forest.

The county seat of Liberty County is the city of Bristol (pop. 998), Florida’s smallest county seat.

Veterans Memorial Park in Bristol is the home of the mile-long, narrow-gauge Veterans Memorial Railroad.

Since 2002

In the 1950s, Baptist pastor Elvy E. Callaway declared, after much research, that Bristol was the site of the original Garden of Eden.
