Welcome to Long Beach

 
A bustling city with gorgeous beachfront views
 
In 1921, the discovery of oil near Long Beach and Signal Hill sparked a fast expansion, with a construction boom in Downtown costing a million dollars per month. It also aided in the town's development as a prominent beach resort and port city, with The Pike, a boardwalk entertainment area, attracting a large number of visitors. This prosperous expansion was halted, however, when a 6.4-magnitude earthquake struck the downtown area in 1933, killing 120 people and causing $50 million in damage.

The California Field Act of 1933 was enacted in response to this tragedy, requiring all public schools to be earthquake-resistant in design and construction. Approximately a hundred structures have been classified as historic monuments, with 16 historic districts containing surviving buildings from that era.

Long Beach, California is noted for its diversity in many areas, including the various architectural types seen across the city. Long Beach boasts architectural housing types for everyone, from turn-of-the-century historical homes to modern residences.
