The Rose Park Historic District gains its name from the charming circular park on Orizaba Avenue at the intersection of 8th Street. The park was donated to the city in 1910 by the Alamitos Land Company. Rose Park and Rose Park South were first settled in 1905, with subdivisions continuing until 1921. Most of the homes built in this early period through the 1920s are Craftsman Bungalows. Some houses from the 1920s were built in the Prairie/Mission Revival style, and in the 1930s and 1940s Ranch style and Neo-Traditional houses were built in the district. Living in the Rose Park neighborhood offers the benefits of being centrally located in Long Beach just a mile to the beach, and having a character home in the Craftsman Cal-Bungalow style that is so popular in the area.
