When the sun dips below the horizon, pink and orange hues bathe the sky above Millie Riera's Seafood Grotto in Redondo Beach. A pack of dolphins leaps across Santa Monica Bay. Dusk's shadows fall on the million-dollar mansions dotting the Palos Verdes Peninsula. A kayaker splashes in the Pacific blue, and walkers, joggers and strollers pass by on the Strand as twilight lingers.

The City Council has decided to keep a plot of land in the historic area of Dominguez Park as open space until a decision is made on what to do with a historic Arts and Crafts home that the Redondo Beach Historical Society would like to move to the location. The city was planning to build a gazebo on the land in Heritage Court, but members of the Historical Society argued that the space was reserved for a third historic home to be restored. Two other residences are already on display there.

For decades, the rumors floated that the modest bungalow surrounded by a forest of tall trees in Redondo Beach had been the weekend hideaway of Stan Laurel--the skinny half of Laurel and Hardy. Real estate agents whispered to prospective clients viewing homes that this was where Laurel came to get away from it all. Neighbors boasted that the entertainer had rested his head inside the 1935 Colonial Revival bungalow on Curtis Avenue.

The City Council has given the city's Historical Society until Monday to draw up a proposal to move an historic Arts and Crafts home to Heritage Court in Dominguez Park. The council was scheduled to make a decision this week on whether the 1921 home could be moved to Heritage Court, where two other historic residences have been restored and are on display. City officials postponed the decision, saying they needed more information. They plan to reconsider the issue April 21.

The long-awaited Veterans Park Community Center in Redondo Beach has finally opened in the landmark library building. The oceanfront center is housed in the 60-year-old Redondo Beach Historic Library Building in Veterans Park, a Spanish colonial-style building that was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1981. According to Paula Matusa, a spokeswoman for the city, the building has been under renovation for five years to convert it from a library to a community center.

Nearly two years after two storms and a fire reduced the Redondo Beach pier to a battered stump, a judge ruled Wednesday that the city must rebuild the once-venerable landmark. Torrance Superior Court Judge Abraham Gorenfeld, to the delight of the shell-jewelry vendors and seaside restaurateurs whose businesses once lined the pier, held that reconstruction--which could cost up to $4.6 million--is required by the pier lease. "I'm elated!"

The paint is peeling. The porches droop. Even their biggest advocate says they're "ratty." Parked in a poplar grove in Redondo Beach, the two old houses are so forlorn that to many they seemed landmarks only an architectural scholar could love. But love works in strange and manifold ways, the South Bay's oldest city is discovering.

The Redondo Beach Historical Society is trying to raise $50,000 to restore the Morrell House, one of the city's last California Craftsman-style homes with a wraparound porch.

Southern California has never been known as a leader in preserving its architectural heritage, but in Redondo Beach there is a fledgling movement to save what is left. Through an aggressive recruiting effort by the 4-year-old Redondo Beach Historic Preservation Commission, and the use of an obscure 1976 state law, the city has begun to develop a new resource: historic homes.
