Jergins Pillars
(Long Beach, CA)

Two majestic and ornate pillars that once stood atop the Jergins Trust Building in Downtown Long Beach are now on solid ground, just a mile away in Willmore City/Drake Park Historic District. The Willmore City Heritage Association, alongside the City Council, recently brought a piece of Long Beach architectural history back to life. The Jergins Trust Building, originally built in the early 1900s, was located on the corner of Ocean Boulevard and Pine Avenue. After a long fight to save the structure, it was demolished in 1988. Fortunately, there were a number of elements taken from the building and saved. The association was able to complete the restoration with donations from the Long Beach Naval Memorial Heritage Association and Downtown Long Beach Business Associates grants.
