GENESEO – Formed in 1821, Livingston County will be celebrating its Bicentennial in 2021.

Multiple county-wide events will be held as this milestone draws near. The second event, entitled “Local History Out Loud – Part Two: The History of Livingston County from the Civil War to the Industrial Revolution”, involves the creation of a historical video by the Livingston County Historian’s Office.

The Historian’s Office is searching for volunteers to narrate portions of the video.
