With a population of about 85,000 and a beginning that was spurred on by the opening of a railroad track in the mid-1800s, it’s hard to believe how far the city of Livermore has progressed. This progression was brought on by founder William Mendenhall, who saw its potential and transformed the area into an agricultural center unlike any other. Ranches and farms were established, as well as vineyards and wineries. In fact, Livermore is one of the oldest wine growing regions in California with some vineyards dating back to 1849. Livermore’s perfect wine-growing microclimate made it possible for it to become home to over 50 wineries; many of which are award-winning.
Once Livermore put its stamp on agriculture, it took things one step further by expanding into the industrial market and becoming home to two-world renowned laboratories—the Lawrence National Laboratory and the Sandia National Laboratory. These labs provided the city with its largest employers, which ultimately gave Livermore a stronger push towards new housing and commercial developments to accommodate the newest residents.
In the past few years, the city has seen significant retail development with the additions of a Target, Walmart, and Costco; and most recently, a 512,000 sq. ft. center for Premium Outlets.
