Livingston Billings was the first lawyer of Monticello, and he came here from Poughkeepsie before Sullivan was yet a county. Traditions say that he came here on horseback expecting to find a thriving village, and that he rode through Main Street, now Broadway, over the westward hill, without suspecting that he had passed through the place. He continued his journey until he reached the home of Uzziel Royce, where upon inquires he was told that he had already passed through the future Capitol.
