Livonia MI is located in Wayne County just south of Farmington Hills and east of Plymouth and Northville. Livonia is just under 36 square miles in size and boasts a massive population of nearly 97,000 residents making it one of the most prolific cities in metro Detroit ranking in the top ten of the largest cities by population in the state of Michigan. Livonia is located just 25 minutes from the heart of downtown Detroit and 30 minutes from Ann Arbor.
History of Livonia
Originally inhabited by the Potowatami Indians, settlers from New England and New York began arriving in the area and, in 1835, this stretch of land became Livonia Township. The name Livonia is not original; the name originates from cities in New York, Pennsylvania and places as far away as Latvia and Estonia. In the first 100 years of Livonia’s existence, dairy farms, orchards and sheep, cattle and vegetable farms began popping up and growing the local economy.
In the 1940’s, the automotive industry put its stamp on Livonia with the opening of a General Motors transmission plant as well as a Ford auto parts supply depot. As roads were paved and routes to Detroit and other suburbs opened up, Livonia shed its farm and agricultural heritage allowing the industrial revolution to enter the township. In 1950, Livonia was incorporated to a city and grew from a population of 17,000 to well over the 90,000 it is today.
Weather in Livonia
Livonia is located in a temperate climate where the summers can get warm and humid and the winters get cold and snowy. When you have a reliable entry door or patio door, you will have a more energy efficient home. With a barrier like a new door, there is a less likelihood of drafts and outside elements affecting the temperature and efficiency of your home. When you have temperatures dipping into the teens on the coldest January nights, you will want everything possible keeping that frigid weather on the outside of the house, especially if the winds kick up.
