Prior to western civilization, the area was inhabited by the Tongva tribe along the coastal and inland areas. The arrival of the Europeans brought strange diseases to which the local tribes were not immune to and resulted in large casualties. The Tongva villages then slowly moved away from the Europeans and were, to some extent, also mushed away by the missions and their intention to proselytize.
When the Spanish arrived in the 16th century they named the area Rancho San Pedro, where Long Beach was a part of. Only the western part of Long Beach was in the Rancho San Pedro. Aside from the Spanish, Mormons also arrived here a little later and attempted to set up a colony. The problem however was that land and ownership was demarcated by the rivers that kept changing due to the tides and floods, this caused disputes among landowners that eventually saw the Mormons leave.
The other part of Long Beach was a part of Rancho Los Cerritos. This part of the area was purchased by Jotham bixby under the Bixby Land Company. He is credited with being the father, or founder of modern day Long Beach. From his parcel of land, Bixby sold 4000 acres to William Wilmore. Wilmore then subdivided Bixby's land and converted it to a community of farmers, naming it Willmore City. By 1881, Willmore City had taken hold and more buildings had propped up and the town was initially flourishing. Part of the plan was to developme Willmore City into a seaside resort. This eventually failed and the land was sold to the Long Beach Land and Water Company. The city was named Long Beach due to its beach that measured over 81 miles. The City of Long Beach was then reincorporated in 1897.
