New Liberty, Kentucky
New Liberty is an Owen county community on KY 36 and KY 227 about seven miles northwest of Owenton.

Another community developed soon after south of Adams Town, known as Browns Town for a family there. The combined town of New Liberty became the largest in the county. The source of that name is obscure. New Liberty was incorporated in 1827 and dissolved in 1919. A Twin Meeting House post office, named for a local church, opened in 1816 and was renamed New Liberty in 1823.
