January 7th in Seal Beach History

On this date in 1968, The Independent Press Telegram reported the grand opening of a new unit in College Park. The following advertisement was also printed in the same edition:

1968-01-07_College_Park_AdEight new model homes were presented, with new floor plans and exteriors. The new models offered a range from three to six bedrooms and two to three bathrooms, wet bars in family rooms, fireplaces, formal dining and living rooms, flower-fresh kitchens with garden-patio service windows, patios, decks, and balconies. Prices started from $25,950.

Potential buyers were invited to inspect the new models by taking the San Diego Freeway to the Garden Grove Freeway, exit on the Valley View Street turn off, go North on Valley View, and then West to College Park.
