The Long Beach area was originally established in 1784 when the land was sold to soldier Manuel Nieto. From 1784 -1902 the area slowly developed and residents began to permanently reside there. Once the port of Long Beach was established, the rapid growth of the city and the business of trading began. Whilst the port was beginning to thrive the discovery of oil on Signal Hill meant a huge boom in the economy.  The discovery meant community projects, housing development sites, and amenities were constructed rapidly throughout the city. However, this came to a head in 1933 when the city was destroyed by a major earthquake. Downtown Long Beach was rebuilt in in an iconic Art Deco style that can still seen today. In 1975 the Long Beach area began a journey on a 25-year multi-billion dollar redevelopment program. Since then the city has grown even more so with the creation and opening of The Greater Los Angeles World Trade Centre, Shoreline Marina, and Long Beach Convention and Entertainment Centre.

Once Long Beach was a city booming from the extraction of oil. Nowadays, Long Beach is a hub of international headquarters and local firms.
