Keeping Livingston History Alive

We discover, collect, and preserve the natural, industrial, civil, military, political, social, educational, and religious history of Livingston County

We offer a variety of services to cultivate a historic sensibility, share knowledge, and bring local history alive.


We oversee the operations of three of Pontiac's most famous historic homes: The Jones House, the Yost House Museum, and the Jason Strevell House. We also have a selection of local artifacts on public display at the Society's small museum, located inside the 1875 Livingston County Courthouse.


We have gathered an impressive collection of artifacts and histories that help us tell the story of the early days of Livingston County.




Whether you're researching your family's geneology, want to dig deeper into the County's history, or want to get involved in the Society's meetings, we have tools to get you started.
