The Craftsman Village Historic District is located in the heart of Long Beach , between 7th and 10th Streets and Walnut and Orange Avenues. We are two blocks away from the Museum of Latin American Art. On Orange and 7th, you will see the The Craftsman Village Historical District Mural.

We have an elected board and hold monthly meetings to discuss neighborhood issues and address community concerns. We also hold regular street cleanups (monthly), we produce a quarterly newsletter. We also participate in various citywide organizations and in City-sponsored events to promote neighborhood empowerment and historic preservation.



The beautification project from Alamitos to Cherry is complete. For more information, we have a PDF file for you here.

Walnut Street has undergone improvements from 10th to 3rd Street. Several projects to upgrade our curbs and streets have also been completed.

The pocket park on 851 Orange Avenue is complete. The Craftsman Village Historic District has worked hard to get a grant for $722,465 dollars which was awarded to build the park. News of the approval for the grant for the park can be seen in the Long Beach Press Telegram, Oct 12, 2010. As a result of the long term efforts of the CVHD and community, there will more green space available for our area's residents. This is the end of a 3 year process.

Additionally, the reconfiguration of Alamitos and 7th Street corner is well underway. A new park is being built which will add much needed greenspace to our area.


In 2005, we were recognized for Outstanding Community Service by the City of Long Beach , and won 2nd prize nationally from Neighborhoods USA in the category of Physical Revitalization, for our innovative approaches to building community and promoting historic preservation. We also were declared a Neighborhood of the Year by Mayor Beverly O'Neill and received Special Congressional Recognition from Rep. Juanita Millender-McDonald.
