Historic Site: London Planetree (circa 1881)

There are a bunch of historic sites scattered all over Long Beach. Every once in a while I will post one of them. The Long Beach Historical & Preservation Society dedicated this London Planetree as being of historical significance on June 11th, 2000. This tree can be found on the southeast corner of E. Penn Street & Riverside Blvd. Not much more can be said about this tree then what is already written on the plaque below. Click on the photo for a bigger image.

  1. Hi. I'm a writer fascinated with your community. I've been looking for any information you can find about one of your former residents, a Helen M. Day, who lived in one of the historic homes near the water front. She was a friend of Edward F. Croker, another resident who lived a block away in a grand home built in 1913.

    Any information, including never heard of either, would be helpful.

    Thanks. Joe Dowd.
