history


One of the tractors caught on fire when they were putting the berm up in Seal Beach yesterday. No one got hurt I guess it was something to do with the hydraulics.

Have a nice day!

Looks like they’re almost ready to open the Seal beach playground down by the pier hopefully this weekend. Looks like it’s going to be fun there for all the kids even have seals to play on.

Have a nice day!

Bridgeport in Seal Beach is a tract of just over 200 homes in Seal Beach that is east of 1st Street, North of Marina Drive, West of Pacific Coast Highway.  Lot sizes are usually 37.5 feet by 880 square feet.  Certain lots are zoned for one story homes and other two story homes.  There are 25 foot height limits.  Most are Patio homes that share a courtyard wall and are zero lot lines.  The older homes were built in the late 1960’s.  They range in Square feet from 1299 to 1720.  All have alley access, 2 car attached garages.  All have interior patios.  The custom homes on Electric Avenue and Schooner Way were built in the late 1970’s.  They all have alley access with 2-3 car garages.  They range in square feet from 1550 to 3400.  These lots are one and two story specific lots.  Bridge Port is built on a landfill.  It is popular in Seal Beach for many reasons: very close walk to Old Town Main Street and beach, very quiet with no through traffic, always available parking for guest with out guest passes, very private interior patios, most homes have master bedrooms with attached baths and larger closets.

This year is Seal Beach’s 100th year anniversary.  There were a lot of things going on in town.  We had a wonderful party with fireworks, food, rides and music.  It was so much fun. The Lions club even donated a centennial clock by the pier.  You could purchase centennial bricks from the city for only $100, which I thank Laura Elisworth for donating all of her time to promote this.  Thank you again Laura.

They are taking down the berm in march this year.

Have a nice day!

River Beach Townhomes in Seal Beach are located West of 1st street and North of Marina Drive. There are about 80 town homes built in the early 1980’s. They are two and three bedrooms and 2.5 baths between 1400-1750 square feet. These are the nicest and pretty much the only town homes in this area. They have a pretty low association fee and are within walking distance to the beach, some even have views of the Ocean or River.

What is the Hill in Seal Beach? The Hill is located North of Pacific Coast Highway and west of Seal Beach Blvd. The standard lot is 50 x 100, some lots are larger. Built in the 1950’s in four tracts. Square footage of homes varies from 1100 and up. The Newport Inglewood fault runs throughout the Hill. Lots higher on the Hill have some views and the homes that back to Gum Grove Park seem to have more value.

I have been doing some research about the pier in Seal Beach.  The First Pier was built-in 1906 and was 6 feet wide and 1865 feet in length and was the longest pier south of San Francisco.

In 1915 no one was allowed at the end of the pier because there was a high voltage light show at the end of the pier.

In 1935 a storm broke the pier in half and they had to use Bosun’s chair by the Coast Guard to get the people off the end.  Because of the great depression the pier wasn’t repaired until 1939.

In 1983 120 ft of the Pier was destroyed by a storm and the residents of Seal Beach raised $130,000 to repair the pier.  The is when Slick the Seal took up residence after the pier was repaired.

In 1992 a short in the electrical wiring under the pier resulted in severe fire damage.  Because of potential fire danger the city council prohibited smoking on the pier.

I found this old picture of what the pier looked like in the 1920’s.  It is a lot different now.  One of my favorite things to do in Seal Beach is to take a walk on the pier and watch the sunset. old pictures of Seal Beach4 big
