History[edit]

The plat for Livonia, Missouri was laid out in May, 1859 by Absalom Grogan and consisted of four blocks containing eight lots each. Grogan was also the towns first postmaster. Following Grogan's death however, the post office was moved to the farm of Joseph Martin approximately three miles to the north of the original plat. The town, for all practical purposes, followed this move and by 1888 had the post office, Martin's general store, the blacksmith shop of Dan Kelly, and a population of around fifteen people.[6]
On July 26, 2011 the United States Postal Service announced plans to permanently close the Livonia post office as part of a nationwide restructuring plan.[7]
