Livingston History

Wagon master David Baldwin Chedester arrived in what is now known as Livingston in the year 1862, and is generally credited to be the first settler in the region. Livingston was originally supposed to be named after the famous African explorer, Dr. Livingstone. However, when a petition for a post office was made in 1873, the letter 'e' was accidentally dropped from the name and the city officially came to be known as Livingston. At one point of time, the city had the only stop light on highway number 99 that ran from Sacramento to Bakersfield. The city of Livingston was incorporated in 1922 and Charles Daman became the first mayor.
