On the 4th Saturday of each month, explore the oldest residential development in Long Beach! Willmore City started in 1881 from a subdivision of the Rancho Los Cerritos and is home to the impressive Queen Anne Bembridge House and a variety of Victorian, Period Revival, and Craftsman styles that provide a cross-section of early 20th century Long Beach residential architecture. You will also visit Drake Park, named for Colonel Charles Rivers Drake who developed the Pike amusement complex and the Knoll Park housing development.

The tour will include a breif interior tour of the Bembridge House (special conditions apply in December) and, in contrast, a fully restored Queen Anne “workman’s” cottage, as well as a few surprises along the way!
