Here's a look at several of the historic homes:
The Morrell House might be the most famous of the historic homes in Redondo Beach. Built in 1906 by Ed Morrell, a prominent entrepreneur, it was one of the first in Redondo Beach to have electricity and at 2,200 square feet was nearly twice as big as most houses in the city at that time.
The Queen Anne Cottage, circa 1904, now sits next to the Morrell House in Heritage Court within Dominquez Park and serves as the city's historical museum. The home was originally built at 318 S. Broadway and was slated for demolition in 1989 before it was acquired by the city and moved to its current location and later renovated.
The Sweetser House is one of the most recognized in Redondo Beach. Built in 1921 at a cost of just $5,000, the Colonial Revival home belonged to Chase and Lillian Sweetser and later Chase Jr., who served as president of Coca-Cola until 1961 and lived in the home until his death in 1987. The home was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1984.
To get a look at more of the historic homes, the City of Redondo Beach lists all of the properties designated as local landmarks, while the Redondo Beach Historical Society has been hosting yearly home tours since 1982. Visit their Facebook page for more information.
