This group of eight structures represents two phases in the residential development of old Long Beach: luxurious mansions, followed by multi-family dwellings catering to the working class. The large-scale, single-family homes—reflecting a variety of architectural styles in the early 1900s—are prime examples of high-style Period Revival, vernacular Craftsman, Greek Revival, Victorian/Craftsman blend, and American Foursquare. The neighborhood historically notes several prominent City figures as residents, including Galen H. Welch, a member of the first ever City Council of Long Beach, and Jonah Jones Jr., the founder of Long Beach Yacht Club. The Mediterranean Revival fourplex, built in 1922, reflects the following era of residential development in Long Beach, with two-story apartments built to accommodate the fast-growing wor-ing class population during the City’s economic boom in the early 20th century.
