According to county officials, the descendants of Charles and Willa Bruce, the original landowners of Bruce’s Beach, plan to sell the oceanfront property back to Los Angeles County for almost $20 million.
Last July, LA County gave the land first owned by the couple back to their heirs as a reparation for the unjust actions taken by the city of Manhattan Beach to obtain the property nearly 100 years ago. The land is now worth millions, and the living relatives recently shared they decided to sell it back to the county, although the timing of the sale is unclear.
