THE FRIENDLY CITY IN EVERY WAY
Long Beach was incorporated in 1905 and many of its current residents are descendants of the original settlers. This commitment to community is a reflection of the high quality of life that exists in our town. We are proud of the history of Long Beach and enthusiastic about what it has to offer in the way of opportunity and growth.
Long Beach offers all that larger cities might - industrial, commercial and retail - while maintaining our small town charm. At the heart of the town is a newly constructed city hall, surrounded by the library, charming shops and welcoming restaurants. Our city is also home to numerous churches and banks.
Being business friendly is extremely important to us too. We have a strong partnership that exists among our local businesses, non-profit organizations, schools and the community they serve. Business resources are plentiful, and we're here to be a partner in your success
