Historic Downtown Tour

Saturday, June 8, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm


The Historic Downtown tour is the premier architecture tour of Long Beach Architecture Week. Highlighting the iconic historic buildings that shape the downtown cityscape, this tour promises to provide visitors with unprecedented access to some of the most important and loved structures in our city. Outside of downtown Los Angeles, Long Beach is one of the few city centers in the region that can boast of historic high rises. What downtown Long Beach provides is the combination of beach and buildings that create a distinctive coastal cityscape. Take the Historic Downtown Tour to experience the fascinating history of iconic buildings and registered historic landmarks, such as the Lafayette, a former hotel and residential apartment building that spans Art Deco to Streamline Modern.  The tour will provide access to spaces that are not normally accessible to the general public and will include discussions of period details and preservation.


Buildings in the tour include:
Lafayette, Cooper Arms, First Congregational Church, The Willmore.

Note: Not all structures are ADA compliant due to the historic nature of buildings.
