A neighborhood steeped in Long Beach’s rich history. The Willmore City Drake Park historic distric (Willmore) was the first historic district declared by the City. Willmore is named for William Willmore, the developer of the American Colony “Willmore City” which was renamed Long Beach, and was part of the city’s original 1881 plan. It contains the highest concentration of late nineteenth and early twentieth-century homes in Long Beach. Victorian, Craftsman, Mission, Prairie, Italian Renaissance, and Spanish Colonial Revival styles are all represented. It is also home to a very caring community and two parks, Drake and Cesar Chavez Park. More information on this neighborhood provided by the Willmore City Heritage Association is available here.

The North East Village (NEV) neighborhood is an emerging community identity located in the northeast corner of Downtown Long Beach. Its borders are Long Beach Blvd. and Alamitos Avenue, and 10th Street and 4th Street. It’s a densely populated community, marked by many historical churches and buildings throughout the area including Saint Anthony Parish, considered Long Beach’s “Mother Church,” established in 1902. Historically, the NEV area was a part of the Historic East Village Arts District, but as the needs of the community have evolved, so has the identity of this area. Visitors will find schools, families, grocery stores, and maintenance shops. North East Village is also home to a diverse array of cuisine, from Japanese fried chicken and heartwarming Korean tofu soup to delectable Venezuelan potato balls.
