History and culture

History

The Livermore area was home to the Ohlone (or Costanoan) before the arrival of the Spanish in the 18th century; it was incorporated under the Roman Catholic Mission San Jose in 1796. The Livermore Amador Valley was primarily grazing land for Mission San Jose's thousands of cattle and sheep until secularization of California missions from 1834 to 1837 opened great amounts of land throughout California for Mexican land grants. The fourth and second largest of the valley's land grants was the Rancho Las Positas grant, made to rancher Robert Livermore (a naturalized Mexican citizen of English birth) and Jose Noriega in 1839. Livermore was as much interested in viticulture and horticulture as he was in cattle and horses; in 1846 he was the first in this area to plant both a vineyard and an orchard of pears and olives. The first building on the ranch was an adobe on Las Positas Creek, and in 1849 a two-story "Around the Horn" house was added; it was the first wooden building in the valley. For the college of the same name, see Ohlone College. ... The Ohlone were an ethnic group whose members lived in what is now the San Francisco Bay Area of California until after the European discovery and settling of this area. ... The Roman Catholic Church, most often spoken of simply as the Catholic Church, is the largest Christian church, with over one billion members. ... Mission San José de Guadalupe Mission San José de Guadalupe was founded on June 11, 1797 by Father Fermin Lasuen, the fourteenth mission in the California mission chain. ... On December 15, 1799, six-week old Robert Thomas Livermore was christened at a parish church in Springfield, England. ...


After the discovery of gold in California, Livermore became a popular stopping place for prospectors headed for the Mother Lode, as it was one day's journey by horse or stagecoach from San Jose. The California Gold Rush (1848–1855) began shortly after January 24, 1848 (when gold was discovered at Sutters Mill in Coloma). ...


Robert Livermore died in 1858 before the establishment of the town that bears his name. His ranch included much of the present-day city. The city itself was established in 1869 by William Mendenhall, who had met Robert Livermore while marching through the valley with Fremont's California Battalion. Livermore was officially incorporated on April 15, 1876. 1869 (MDCCCLXIX) is a common year starting on Friday (link will take you to calendar) of the Gregorian calendar or a common year starting on Sunday of the 12-day-slower Julian calendar. ... is the 105th day of the year (106th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Livermore's culture retains some vestiges of the farming and ranching traditions that have existed in the valley since the time of Robert Livermore, but now largely reflects the values of its suburban population. Livermore has a strong blue-collar element, as well as many professionals who work at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and various hi-tech industries within the Bay Area. The city has recently gone much more upscale with the addition of several hundred million dollar homes set amongst the southside's vineyards as well as a multi-million dollar renovation of the downtown area, which includes a new motion picture theater, as well as a performing arts theater, a parking structure, and office buildings. The new construction is expected to be finished in early to mid 2007.

Controversy

There has been some recent controversy over the closing of two highly respected schools in the district, and also surrounding the charter of The Livermore Valley Charter School. The controversy began in 2005 when two elementary schools, Almond Avenue and Arroyo Mocho, were closed. These schools had the highest test ratings of all public schools in the district, so the closing was naturally controversial. Several ambitious parents, angered at the closing of the schools, started a movement to open a charter school. Unfortunately for them, they were not granted a charter by the county. Determined, they went above the authority of the county, and received a charter from the state.
