The Sunrise Boulevard Historic District reflects the development of Long Beach from its early farms and ranches to a residential neighborhood. The Butler Ranch was eventually developed into the Porter Milk Sanitarium, before the area was transformed into a residential district in the early 1900s. An early motor court, named the El Cortez, was built on the site of the sanitarium, which today provides small apartments. A majority of homes in this district are Craftsman Bungalows, ranging from large mansions to small-scale bungalows originally built as workers’ housing. Another architecturally significant style in this district is Spanish Colonial Revival, constructed between 1924 and 1928.
