Published by South Bay Digs
Like all of the south Bay cities, Redondo Beach experienced rapid development in the 1960’s and 1970’s, at which time many of the older homes and buildings were torn down. High-density housing, two-on-a-lot, and numerous shopping malls became the name of the game. However, some residents in older Redondo Beach neighborhoods banded together and formed a preservation society with the goal of protecting the remaining historic homes in the city. one such protected area is the Gertruda Avenue History district, featuring homes full of character and history – homes that reflect the original, early look of Redondo Beach.
Located on the 300 block of north Gertruda Avenue, many of these historic homes feature a blend of craftsman and colonial revival style. Fourteen of the homes are included in the city’s Historic district designation and are also listed in the national register of Historic Places as part of the original townsite Historical district (1906-1923). The homes on north Gertruda avenue represent one of the remaining collections of homes built during the early settlement period of Redondo Beach. Collectively, they are considered a valuable resource of historic significance to the city.
