Program and Event Changes During the Pandemic

The Long Beach Heritage Preservation Awards went online with a virtual event Thursday, September 17. Winner videos will be available soon.

We held our annual meeting virtually on July 18 — watch the recording on Facebook to hear from Councilmember Rex Richardson and community leader Dan Pressburg!

Walking tours, including East Village, Downtown, and Willmore City, are canceled until further notice. 

The Bembridge House is closed for tours until further notice.

We will actively monitor the latest developments and look forward to resuming Bembridge House tours and rescheduling events as soon as it is safe to do so. Thank you for your support and understanding as we work to keep our community strong and healthy.
