Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Title: Read more about city's interesting 175-year history Author: Staff Writer Publisher: hometownlife.com Date: 3/25/2010 If you enjoyed reading about Livonia's 175-year history and seeing the historic photographs in our special section in today's paper, pick up copies of Livonia by David MacGregor and Livonia Preserved by Suzanne Daniel and Kathleen Glynn. We used those pictorial books for the photographs and accompanying captions in the section. Published by Arcadia, the books are available for check out from all branches of the Livonia Public Library or for purchase for $20 each from Greenmead Historical Park in Livonia. We also used information from Footpaths to Freeways by Dominic P. Paris and Livonia Public Schools 1830-2002 by Martha A. Trafford for some of the stories. Those books are also available for check out from the library. Copies of Footpaths to Freeways are available for purchase at Greenmead at varying prices, depending on their condition and whether they are hard or soft cover. Many of the interesting "Did you know?" facts in the section came from Livonia Chronology complied by Suzanne Daniel, Harriet Larson and James Melosh. That reference book is available for research at Greenmead. We trust you'll find all five books fascinating to read, as we did. We would like to thank the authors for chronicling Livonia's growth from an agricultural community settled by pioneers to the progressive, high-tech city it is today. Without their work, much of the city's history would be lost to future generations
