Livingston County Historical Society’s Local History Exhibit

The Livingston County Historical Society protects and preserves our local history. The Society maintains a small exhibit inside the Livingston County Courthouse. On display are artifacts dating back to prehistoric times, as well as many items from Native-American cultures that inhabited the area, and items representative of the earliest days of settlement.  The items on display represent only a small portion of the Society’s collection.
