October 4th in Seal Beach history

On this day in 1929, the Seal Beach city council accepted the new city hall in a business session. At a cost of $37,355, the new building would house all the city departments and had an auditorium on the second floor. Furniture would be installed over the next ten days, allowing the city workers a couple weeks to settle in before the public reception on October 28th.

The “new’ city hall — nearly 33 years later.
