Now an incorporated city, Signal Hill has an interesting history of oil discovery starting in the 1920s. It was once covered with oil derricks which could be seen from many miles away. Some oil sites remain, but the area is now almost all a mix of 1920s houses and modern residential development, business and commercial sites, with fewer open land oil lease sites still in existence. Commercial outlets include large chain stores, restaurants and smaller businesses. The 405 (San Diego Freeway) is within a few minutes drive.
Earlier condo developments occupy some prime view lots--in fact, view protection is part of current city guidelines for residential development.
Signal Hill's elementary school is administered by the Long Beach Unified School District which is found at the schools link.
