Let’s take a trip back in time for some history about this centrally located city. The first residents to inhabit Livonia were the Potowatami Indians. Pioneers from New England traveled to the area due to the rich soil and abundant crops. As the New Englanders poured in, so did the name they brought with them, originally a name of a city located in New York.  Livonians spent the first century raising dairy cattle, sheep, and growing grain and vegetables. Eventually dirt roads gave way to paved highways and the town began to emerge from agricultural to industrial. Two contributing factors to the industrial growth of the late 1940’s were The General Motors Corporation, and the Ford Motor Company part depot. A thoroughbred and harness racetrack was added in 1949, built by the Michigan Racing Association. Finally, Livonia was voted in by the residents to officially become a city in 1950. The once small town of only 17,000 residents in 1950 has grown to a large suburb of 96,942 as of the 2010 census. Livonia has preserved its rich heritage with over 1800 acres of park land and open space to be enjoyed by the public. Don’t forget to visit Greenmead Historical Village located at the southwest corner of Eight Mile and Newburgh Roads, for a trip back in time in Livonia’s history.
