History Bike Long Beach – Photo Gallery

I participated in History Bike Long Beach, a ride which was conducted by the Long Beach Historical Society  and Long Beach Streets on June 13th. We are so lucky to live in a city that’s rich with so much history! It was fun hearing stories about houses and buildings that we blindly see every day. I’ll save all the history details for the next ride .. hopefully there will be another one soon.

Historical Railing Requested By Historical Society

Last week, maintenance crews chopped up what turned out to be a very authentic, and very much original, railing across a section of the boardwalk.  I contacted the Long Beach Historical Society to see what they had to say.

Carole Geraci, the President of the Long Beach Historical Society said they they have “requested to have several pieces of the railing sent to the museum,” and if they receive them, they will add the railing to their “repository of historical Long Beach artifacts.”
