Then & Now: Livermore Stories: A Local History Lecture Series presented by the Livermore Heritage Guild and the Livermore Public Library

“A Tour of Historic Downtown Livermore” presented by Richard Finn, Livermore City Historian. *THIS EVENT WILL BE RECORDED*

Richard Finn, Livermore City Historian, will take us on a virtual walk down Livermore's Main Street (now First Street), from Lizzie Street (now S Livermore Avenue) to L Street, in the late 1800s. Richard will identify some of the Tri-Valley’s pioneers and explain why they came here. He will also show some of the great old buildings that once stood in Livermore.

Richard has lived in the Livermore Valley since 1959, when he started working at Sandia National Laboratories. He retired in 1996 as manager of Integrated Design Services and Engineering Information Management. In retirement he has spent a great deal of time studying his family history, including publishing family histories. For some time Richard has been researching Tri-Valley pioneer families with the help of his cousin, Peter. They have developed a database of over 43,600 names of pioneers and their descendants. Richard has been president of both Livermore-Amador Genealogical Society and the San Ramon Genealogical Society, and since August 2016 has served as the Livermore City Historian. He is also past president of the Livermore Valley Camera Club.
