History & History Related Items

Livingston history:

The first to settle in the area was David Chedester who came in 1862. He worked as a supplier for the railroad workers. One of those workers, Edward Olds, opened a saloon and store along the Merced River once the railroad was ready to open the bridge across the river. The area began to grow with homes and businesses with the comings and goings of gold seekers, local farmers and the railroad workers. William Little, who was a local land owner, created a plat map of lots along the rails. He hoped to make Livingston the county seat, but the city of Merced won the vote. The town was originally named for Dr. Livingstone who had recently disappeared in Africa. In 1873, in the application for a post office, the e was omitted in the spelling of the name, making the official name Livingston rather than Livingstone.
