Spanning 36 square miles located in northwest Wayne County, Livonia, is the 9th largest city in Michigan with a population over 96,000. First settled by pioneers from New England and New York, Livonia Township was established in 1835. Livonia is a large suburb with a variety of traditional neighborhoods (most of which were built in the 1950s and 1960s), as well as the site of industrial and commercial development. The city has secured much of its heritage through historic preservation, and the acquisition and development of park land and open space.
For the first 100 years, Livonians raised sheep and dairy cattle and grew vegetables and grain. By the late 1940's, the area started to transform from agriculture to commerce and industry. In 1948, the General Motors Corporation built an automatic transmission plant, which was soon followed by a Ford Motor Company parts depot. In 1949, the Michigan Racing Association built a thoroughbred and harness race track. In order for the entire area of the Township of Livonia to benefit from racetrack revenues, it became necessary for Livonia to incorporate. In 1950, the Township was incorporated into the city of Livonia. Michigan's only thoroughbred horse racetrack closed in 1998. Among Livonia’s current top employers are General Motors, Ford Motor Company, and St. Mary Mercy Hospital.
