By becoming a member you receive personal invitations to all HSLB events, discounts on admission and merchandise, and updates on our activities and operations through newsletters, post cards, and e-mail announcements. But far more than that, you join the growing community of Long Beach history enthusiasts, a diverse group at the core of Long Beach cultural and civic affairs. Each member has a different story about how he or she became interested in Long Beach’s past, not to mention its present and future. To become a part of this exciting community please consider joining HSLB today. The membership level is your choice – it is simply that you show your commitment, at any level, which most ensures that Long Beach’s past has a future for many years to come.
What’s the best way to connect with Long Beach history? The answer is simple: Join HSLB today! Becoming an HSLB member is easy and open to all, and there is no better way to support the vital work of preserving and disseminating local history. Here at HSLB we work hard to maintain the heritage of our city through a variety of means: We stage public programs and exhibitions; we operate a research center (open to academics and amateur historians alike) and book store; we engage in the preservation of artifacts and documents; we host academic conferences; we open our gallery doors as a primary uptown civic venue; and each year we put on our signature historical reenactment series, the Annual Cemetery Tour, now fifteen years in the running.
