Livermore history:

The city was founded by William Mendenhall and was named for his friend, Robert Livermore. Robert also had lived in the area on his ranch since the 1830's.

The Ohlone Native Americans lived here originally. Later, under the direction of the California Mission San Jose in 1796, the area served the mission as grazing land for the cattle and other herds. When the mission system was secularized between 1834 and 1837, the Rancho Las Positas grant was made to Robert Livermore. He was the first to plant vineyards and other fruit orchards. Livermore died before the town was named for him.

Livermore was incorporated on 15 April 1876. The downtown area was filled with businesses and many large hotels. The area has many Italian families that played a large part in establishing Livermore has a center for wineries and vineyards.
