Torrance Historical Society’s 9th Annual Summer Stroll

Address: 1345 Post Ave., Torrance, CA 90501
Phone: 310.328.5392
Website: https://www.torrancehistoricalsociety.org/

On Wednesday, August 10th, the Torrance Historical Society is hosting the 9th Annual Summer Stroll Special — a docent-led tour into some of the hip restaurants in Old Torrance for a sip & a snack and a peek into the past behind the brick and mortar.

When Torrance was founded 110 years ago, business began to build. Downtown Torrance, which is in the center of the original footprint of the City, soon became the heartbeat of the town. More than a century later, many a business has come and gone through those old buildings — they each have a story to tell.

Not only will you learn the building’s history, we’ll show you old photos of the “before”, as you stand in the “now.” The buildings on tour include – the Museum, Red Car Brewery & Restaurant, Tortilla Cantina, Depot, Local Kitchen, Chado Tea Room, and Torrance Bakery!

When: Wednesday, August 10th

Where: Tour begins at the Torrance Historical Society – 1345 Post Avenue, Old Torrance

Time: 6:00 PM, sharp

Cost: $45 donation, per person (checks payable to: “Torrance Historical Society” – mail to: Torrance Historical Society – 1345 Post Ave., Torrance, CA 90501)

RSVP: 310.328.5392 – reservations will be received on a first-come/first-served basis.  Payment must be received within 48 hours of reservation in order to hold your spot.  This is always a SOLD-OUT event, and . . . it sells out FAST!
