March 1st in Seal Beach History

On this date in 1959, the Seal Beach Lumber and Supply Co. ran this ad in the Long Beach Independent Press-Telegram, hoping, no doubt, to attract some trade from boaters using the Long Beach Marina.

Those of us with fond memories of the lumberyard will confirm that it seemed to have “Everything to Build Anything.”

    What year did The seal Beach lumber yard cease to exist in other words what year was it that they decided to tear the buildings down

    The owner was auctioning off equipment in late 1978 after deciding to retire, and the Bay City Center was under construction in early 1980. We’re probably looking at the actual lumber yard building being demolished at some point between November 1978 to mid-1979.
