A community established here was named Long Beach, and it became a city in 1888. Oceanfront property in the city was developed during the late 1800s and early 1900s. Long Beach is now one of the largest shipping ports in the world. Owners of Long Beach CA homes can learn more about the city's history at bycitylight.com/cities/us-ca-long_beach-history.php.
