History

Levasy is named for William Wallace Livesay, (October 1, 1824 – September 17, 1898). Livesay was first a "forty-niner" and later a wagon-train master on the California, Oregon and Sante Fe trails, primarily hauling freight for the U.S. Army. The village which was located on the northwest corner of the Livesay farm was misnamed by the Lexington Branch of the Missouri Pacific Railroad when it prepared the first train-station sign.
