Livingston was incorporated as a township on February 5, 1813, with portions of the town taken from Caldwell Township and appropriately being named for William Livingston, the first Governor of New Jersey; his family's coat of arms served as the township's seal for many years. Historically, the community has been one of the state's highest-income communities with an excellent public school system, a large public, and a fine art scene covered in more than 470 acres of wooded parks and hiking trails.
