Livingston County was founded on
February 27, 1837. It
was formed from parts of McLean, LaSalle, and Iroquois counties,
named after Edward Livingston, Secretary of State in the cabinet of
President Andrew Jackson. He was the mayor of New York City, represented New York in the United States
House of Representatives, then represented Louisiana in both houses
of Congress and the
United States Minister to France. Although he had no connections to
Illinois, the General Assembly found him accomplished enough to
a county after him.
