Every building has a story to tell. Understanding its past is a key to its present and even to its future.
Through her company, HouStories, Maureen Neeley, MLIS, has researched over 400 properties in the past twelve years. A full house history is most often-requested, but she consults for realtors, developers, and designers who seek specific information about a property’s history. She also presents workshops, tutorials and tours for neighborhoods, the public and real estate offices on historic preservation.
She works in nearly every neighborhood of Long Beach, including: Cal Heights, Bixby Knolls, Country Club, Alamitos Heights, Belmont Shore, Naples, Belmont Heights, Bluff Park, Bluff Heights, Rose Park, Alamitos Beach, Willmore City, Wrigley, the East Village, and Downtown.
Architecturally, the properties run the gamut from Victorian to Mid-Century Modern. Tudor, California Craftsman, Bungalows, Rancho, Mediterranean Revival, Spanish Colonial Revival, Victorian, French Normandy, Italian Revival, Swiss Chalet, and Shingle-Style are just some of the fascinating design styles that can be found in Long Beach.
