History of Livonia

The following is an excerpt from the History page of the City of Website.
The area that is now Livonia was originally inhabited by Potowatami Indians.  Rich soil and abundant harvests had first attracted pioneers from New England and New York to this area.  They brought with them a new way of life and perhaps the very name "Livonia" - the name of a town in New York State, Pennsylvania State and a region of the Baltic Sea comprising present day Estonia and Latvia.  

In 1950, the residents of Livonia Township voted to become a City.  On May 23, 1950, the entire Township was incorporated into the City of Livonia.  Livonia has grown from a population of 17,000 in 1950 to over 100,000 in 1998.

The City of Livonia has held on to much of its heritage through historic preservation, and the acquisition and development of over 1800 acres of park land and open space. Greenmead Historical Village is a 103-acre farm/museum of Livonia's history at the southwest corner of Eight Mile and Newburgh Roads.
