History of Long Beach CA


This area was established by William E. Willmore in 1882 as Willmore City. When Mr. Willmore´s plan to develop the city into a farming community failed, the land was purchased by the Long Beach Land and Water Company. They changed the name to Long Beach and it was incorporated as a city in 1888. The city grew as a waterfront resort, but its main growth occurred after oil was discovered in 1921. It was once known as ˜Iowa by the Sea" because of the large number of Midwesterners from Iowa and other states who relocated here.

History of Long Beach California

Long Beach CA History¦A Native American tribe known as the Tongva (which means the people of the earth)



History of Long Beach California


Long Beach California History

 

 

From the People of the Earth to the City of Long Beach


A Native American tribe known as the Tongva (which means ˜the people of the earth) were the citys first known residents.  The Tongva disappeared in the 1800s as settlers began pouring into the area.  Manuel Nieto built a rancho on a huge parcel of land awarded him through the Spanish Land Grant in 1784.  Over time, his property was divided many times for business and personal reasons.  Long Beach grew out of two settlements that came from Nietos tract:  Los Cerritos and Los Alamito.

 

 

Settling Long Beach

In 1880, Englishman Erwin Willmore created the first township here by subdividing parts of Los Cerritos.  Even after the township failed, settlers were drawn to the areas easy access to the ocean, wide beaches and business opportunity.  By 1888 the City of Long Beach had a name, 59 buildings and a school.  Long Beach incorporated in 1897. 

 

 

Do you like historic homes? 

Today, Willmore City has more Craftsman, Prairie, Victorian, Mission and Spanish Colonial Style homes than any other Long Beach historic homes districts.  Named for Mr. Willmore, it was part of the citys original 1881 plan.

 


Historic Villa Riviera CondominiumsHistoric Villa Riviera Condominiums

In 1933 Long Beach was hit by a very large earthquake which caused incredible damage to buildings for miles around the city.  During the 30s and 40s the city slowly rebuilt itself and began to attract the motion picture industry. 

 

Elizabeth Taylor spent her first honeymoon at the Hilton Hotel on Ocean Boulevard, she married Nicky Hilton, son of Conrad Hilton.  The Breakers Hotel Penthouse has since been converted to the magnificent restaurant The Skyroom (my personal favorite).  

 

 

Long Beach was known as the motion picture capital of the world until post World War I when Hollywood developed around the glitz of the era.  With its perfect Southern California climate, Long Beach afforded the perfect setting for the industry.  There were eight film houses, two stock companies, roller-coasters and bath houses at the historic Pike, along the shore of Downtown Long Beach.  This was the home of the Balboa Amusement Production Company, the worlds most prolific silent-film studio.  W. C. Fields and other stars lived in beautiful mansions in the Bluff Park neighborhood along Ocean Boulevard and First Street, many of which remain in the families to this day.



In 1967 the Queen Mary (built in 1936) was withdrawn from service to the Cunard line and brought to rest in Long Beach Harbor.  She was to become a floating hotel, open to the public.  She was outfitted with restaurants, shops and tours -  open to the public.  Did you know that the Queen Mary transported troops during World War II and served as Winston Churchills headquarters at sea?  She was painted gray and nicknamed ˜The Gray Ghost.  The Queen transported over 800,000 troops and traveled 660,000 miles.  The Queen Mary is now listed in the National Register of Historic Places. 

 



Historic Landmarks
right here in Long Beach. 


Long Beach is home to many interesting and well preserved historic landmarks.  One such historic landmark is Fire Station #10, the oldest remaining fire station in Long Beach.  Today it is no longer in service for firefighters, but instead houses the Long Beach Firefighters Museum and contains a collection of antique fire engines, historical photographs, and other firefighting memorabilia.


 
The  Long Beach Museum of Art
 
in historic Bluff Park, is housed in the historic Elizabeth Milbank Anderson House, a stunning Craftsman Mansion, built in 1929.  The museum is perched on a towering bluff overlooking Long Beach Harbor.  With ocean front gardens and a charming cafe, it is a wonderful place to escape to for a day of gazing out over the ocean, watching the comings and goings of the cruise ships and viewing the harbor. 



If you love books, be sure to visit the historic landmark Acres of Books a family owned used books store that has been in Long Beach for over 50 years.  With more than 750,000 used books in stock, youre sure to find something to enjoy.  (...Read More About Long Beach Historic Landmarks)


Historic Treasures

Today the  Rancho Los Alamitos Historic Ranch and Gardens and Rancho Los Cerritos Historic sites are owned by the City of Long Beach.  Be sure to stop by these history-rich treasures!  Youll see agricultural buildings, acres of gardens and adobe ranch homes dating from the 1800s.  Long Beach is packed with historic homes and significant older structures.

Long Beach Homeowners-Earn Cash-Become Movie Locations

Long Beach Homeowners-Earn Cash-Become Movie Locations-List your Long Beach Home Condo or Business for extra income



LIGHTS CAMERA ACTION - EXTRA INCOME

Long Beach Homes Condos Lofts and Business Owners


List your home as a Long Beach LocationWith the economy in such turmoil many Long Beach homeowners are finding themselves short of cash when it comes time to pay the bills.  Are you interested in making a bit of extra cash?  Would you be willing to turn your Long Beach home or business over to a production company for filming to provide some extra cash flow?  Would you even know where to start to make that happen? 


As a Realtor in Long Beach I understand how important representation is when you are swimming in unknown waters.  It's no different when you are thinking about signing a contract with a production company.  When you list your Long Beach home for sale you depend on your Realtor to market it, negotiate on your behalf and act as your representative.  When you list your home for consideration as a location you need somebody to promote it, negotiate on your behalf and act as your representative.  Not so different huh? 


Wouldn't it be nice if your representative also watched over your home during the production, made certain that your home was insured, treated with respect and was put back together when returned to you?  Seriously, wouldn't you expect that? 


Beyond just having an opportunity to provide some extra cash flow, it's kinda cool to see your home in a commercial, TV show or feature film, isn't it? Do you think that the bragging rights might even make your home more desirable to a buyer when the time comes to sell?  I do!  Bragging rights get transferred! 

 

LB Locations has 8 plus years experience negotiating with film productions.  They have a search-able database, not unlike the MLS, to meet the needs of location scouts when they are seeking the right location.  Shoots can last for 1/2 a day to several weeks.

 

Please don't think that your Long Beach home isn't good enough, they are always scouting a wide variety of different types of locations. All kinds of Long Beach homes, boats, businesses, etc... are needed for shoots, those in good and not so good condition, check out the location library and see for yourself. 


Check them out on Facebook too.  Their recent message on Facebook? 

"Happy because rumor has it, lots of commercials are on production companies' schedules in the upcoming months! NOW is a great time to get your awesome location listed with us!"


Earn extra money by listing your Long Beach home or condo as a production siteSome of LB Locations Production Credits: 

 

  • "Donnie Darko"
  • "American Pie 2 
  • "Red Dragon" 
  • "Not another Teen Movie"
  • "Men vs. Women" Showtime

  • Miller Lite
  • Pizza Hut
  • Safeway
  • Marshall's
  • Jack in the Box
  • Verizon
  • Sheer Cover
  • Anna's Linens


 

Find out How To Be a Location.  Email lblocations@mac.com or call 562-951-0306, send some photos and your contact information, they will contact you and help you become a location. 

 

On a very serious note, becoming a location for a major film production could mean the difference between keeping your Long Beach home and going into foreclosure or short sale.  While this solution will not work for everybody, it is my sincere hope that it will save somebody.  If you are in trouble it just cant hurt to list your Long Beach home, condo or loft as a possible location and may provide you with the time needed to correct your situation.
