Port of Long Beach Boat Tour - April 19th

This event will include a tour of the sights and sounds of the second busiest port in the United States. We will hear about the history of the port from its inception in 1911. It originally consisted of 800 acres of mud that had to be dredged, then a wooden wharf was constructed, and soon lumber schooners arrived from northern California. Today the port has innovative “green” piers that allow huge container ships to turn off their polluting engines while docked. The historic Administration building with its tile mural illustrating the history of the Port of Long Beach up to 1958, when construction began, is a notable piece of architecture.
