Information for this tour was contributed by Douglas Shirk.
The Liberty opened on December 22, 1919. It was designed by E. W. Houghton, seating (originally) approximately 1200 people in a main auditorium and balcony. Cost of construction was $150,000. In the early 1990s, the location of the entrance was changed from the corner of Palouse and Mission (the old address was 1 S. Mission), to its current location, 11 S. Mission, and with that, the theatre was cut into three screens, the main room, with the balcony divided into two seperate small rooms. The theatre had a Wurlitzer organ that, with the remodeling, was moved to the Wenatchee Valley Museum and Cultural Center, where it is used for concerts and backround for silent movies.
