At the foothills of the Absaroka/Beartooth Wilderness Livingston is as diverse as it is picturesque. People from all walks of life make Livingston their home. Artists and actors share the wide streets with ranchers, cowboys and forest rangers.
Livingston has gone through some changes in the past 50 year. A one time thriving railroad town, the city's economy was decimated when Burlington Northern Santa Fe decided to move its diesel engine repair shop out of Livingston in the mid 1980's. Livingston overcame this setback and today has many varied industries and businesses.
With a good school system and many city parks presenting pedestrian and bicycle friendly paths and walkways, Livingston is great place to raise a family.
Livingston's community and government services helps citizens live comfortably while ensuring safe and usable infrastructure for the town. City officials have approved many upgrades to streets, sidewalks and buildings around the downtown while water, sewer and refuse facilities are being improved every year.
It is no wonder Livingston heads national media lists for a top place to live and work.
