The Livermore Hotel was at a very prominent location:  at the South-East corner of 1st & Livermore, putting it in view when traveling east on 1st street, and making it the backdrop for many of the flagpole photos.  It was built in the 1800s (date being researched) and torn down in 1928.  The wooden balcony came down around 1916 when the city ordered all of them removed for fire safety reasons.  The location is not occupied by a park, and it the location of the City Christmas Tree each year.

The Livermore Hotel appears in many photos on other pages, including the Flagpole, and Downtown 1  and Downtown 4 pages.


Probably the best view of the hotel.  Most photos show only the front.  Prior to 1916.
