Get an up close look at Preservation In Action!

Join Long Beach Heritage for Preservation In Action, a talk and tour at First Congregational Church, Long Beach’s oldest standing church structure that has been serving the city for more than 100 years. Technical preservation specialist John Fidler will present an update on the $2 million restoration currently underway to restore the building after a century of ocean air and Los Angeles pollution has taken its toll on the lead in the windows, the beautiful and unique brickwork and the decorative terra cotta.
