The history of the community of Liverpool is a long one. Most families originally settled at Mersey Point, previously known as Black Point. On the west side of Liverpool Harbour is where the Black families were settled. Most of the early land allotments occurred between 1759 and 1765.

One of these early landowners was an African woman named Barbara Cuffy. Western Head, on the outskirts of Liverpool, is the birthplace of Terrence “Tiger” Warrington. A sign at Western Head honours this Queens County native and his feats as a 1930s champion boxer.
