Liverpool Texas History:
Liverpool began as a trading post in approximately 1827. It was a settled community by 1834. The town was officially founded in 1837 as a Chocolate Bayou shipping point for wool, hides, and produce from the Stephen F. Austin colony. Liverpool was named for an English port. The post office was established in 1846. It closed 1867 and reopened in 1879. Liverpool did incorporate. Between 1966 and 1988 the population rose from 150 to 627, probably because of the construction of the nearby Monsanto plant. The 2010 census was 482.
