Grand Bassa County Profile


Grand Bassa County with Buchanan City as its capital is one of the three original counties that first formed the Republic of Liberia. The two others are
Montserrado and Sinoe. It was established in 1833 and, named after Thomas
Buchanan, the first Governor of the Commonwealth of Liberia.
 
The County’s flag is a royal blue cloth with the Liberian flag inserted in the upper left corner and two red and two white stripes in the lower right. The dark blue stands for loyalty, while the stripes represent the four members of the Grand Bassa delegation who signed Liberia’s Declaration of Independence on 26 July 1847, namely Anthony Gardner, John Day, Ephraim Titler, and Amos Herring.
 

 
 
Grand Bassa is a county in the west-central portion of Liberia. One of 15 counties that comprise the first-level of administrative division in the nation, it has nine administrative districts with Madam Etweda A. Cooper as Superintendent.

The County went through series of political and territorial metamorphoses over the years until, on 18 April 1985, during the administration of Samuel Doe, the part of the County known as River Cess was upgraded to the status of a County.
