The small town of Livingston is a popular place for Americana tourism. Tourists may circle the city’s monumental courthouse, hear the children laughing at the nearby Central Park and enjoy community dances each Saturday night at the American Legion Hall.
Many of the town’s structures, masoned with handmade bricks dated back to the 1930s, feature local shops and restaurants lined along the city streets on the public square. Tourists may even notice several original business names from the Roaring Twenty’s engraved in stone on both sides of many structures. The roads were unnamed until the 1920’s, when street signs’ titles emerged, and were titled by the name of the families who lived on them.
