March 28th in Seal Beach History

On this date in 1914, the Guy M. Rush Company ran the following ad announcing to the world that “Seal Beach Is Moving Along” in both the San Bernardino News and The Free Press. The city would incorporate officially as Seal Beach in October of the following year, but the Seal Beach name was already being ferociously pushed as a new real estate brand in the hopes that lots in “Seal Beach” would sell better than lots in the bland and generically named “Bay City.”
