While the tour fulfills the educational objectives of Long Beach Heritage, the proceeds of the event are dedicated to the restoration and support of the historic Bembridge House, a landmark owned by our organization. Please know that we expect the event to sell out with over 600 visitors and volunteers participating. Ticket sales will begin at the end of April. You don't want to miss it!
