Livingston County History

GoLivCoMo new Livingston County website

The Livingston County Library, along with community partners, has created an online encyclopedia for local history at This serves as a resource for the public as well as our schools. Topics currently covered on the website include people, events, and innovatia. Want to read about the failed bank robbery attempt of 1872 or the big fire of 1905? Have you heard of Snare’s Relief ointment? Want to know about the Platter brothers who controlled the prices of horses in St. Louis for a time? Look no further! Similar to the Downtown Historic Tour, this online site is expandable, and we have many more items to add! GoLivCoMo is an Endorsed project for the Missouri Bicentennial. We invite you to take a look! If you have any comments or questions, please contact Kirsten Mouton at or 660-646-0547.
