California Heights Real Estate

California Heights was founded during the Long Beach oil boom of the early 1920s. Many hundreds of California Heights properties were developed by the Jotham Bixby Company during this era, as buyers looked to capitalize on massive projected oil reserves. As it turned out, oil reserves were much smaller than speculators forecasted, but California Heights real estate remained one of the most sought after investments in Southern California until it was built out in the late 30s.
