The Historical Society of Long Beach conducts its annual living history tour at the city’s two oldest – and conveniently adjacent – cemeteries, located on Willow Street between Orange and California. The 2-hour tours recount the stories of the lives and deaths of people from Long Beach’s past, through graveside performances by actors in period costume. The Historical Cemetery Tour is appropriate for all ages – this is not a scary Halloween event. Wear comfortable shoes and layered clothing (mornings are chilly but the day heats up by afternoon).
