Liverpool is Australia's fourth oldest town behind Sydney, Parramatta and Hobart. Unlike these cities, Liverpool was the first free planned settlement of Australia. After planning the Town Square, Macquarie appointed emancipated architect Francis Greenway to design a church. In 1818 he laid the foundation stone and named the church St Luke's. Another monument to Greenway's genius is the TAFE College which was built as the first hospital.
The coming of the railway, opened in September 1856 and the electric telegraph in 1858, provided speedy, safe transport and communication and began the transformation of Liverpool into a major regional city. The history of Local Government in Liverpool dates back to 1848 when a district Council was formed. It was not until June 27, 1872 that the Liverpool Municipality was proclaimed and Richard Sadleir became the first Mayor.
The first World War brought changes to Liverpool. There were extensive military training activities in the area and German prisoners of war were held at Holsworthy.
