Liniers was named after the Virrey Santiago de Liniers Bremond who was one of the biggest supporters of the Hermanas Hijas del Divino Salvador (Sisters Daughters of the Divine Saviour) that were living in the area. Towards the year of 1910 houses were constructed for working families and the people that worked on the railroad, lands were sold in the zone and Rivadavia Avenue was paved in front of the Liniers train station, making it easier for the rails to be located.
As most areas that were reached by the railroad, the development of Liniers and the advancement of the train went hand in hand. The first houses in zone were built in front of the train station, as was the Jesuits chapel and the first "pulperias" (bars). Following this burst of life, the neighborhood grew rather fast and two sub-areas were formed. The Ramón Falcón neighborhood that was formed of about 1.500 humble houses with short, narrow paved streets, all bearing the names of flowers, birds, or novels characters. The other sub-area was the Bajo Liniers.
On the 18th of December the day of Liniers is celebrated.
