Legacy Businesses

The local diner. The neighborhood theater. The corner stores, watering holes, shops, and services that helped define our communities still play a key role in our daily lives. They help make Long Beach, Long Beach. Yet these businesses can face challenges as the city evolves and longtime proprietors retire. To help these neighborhood gems continue to thrive, Long Beach Heritage launched a new program in 2022. The Long Beach Legacy Business Program recognizes and promotes longtime establishments that contribute to our city’s culture and identity. By raising their profile and encouraging their use, the program seeks to help these businesses serve the community for years to come.
