 New Port Beach

The earliest records of the history of Newport Beach, California began at the time when the 
region was first discovered and explored by European explorers in the late 1500s. Before
that time, Native Americans, including the Tongva and Luiseno, lived in the region for thousands 
of years.

Another important historical event in the region would also be the time when the explorer 
Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo went to Newport, Beach’’s coastline and mapped the land
This happened in 1542. However, it was only 200 years later that Europeans settled in the region. 
It was in 1769, Newport was just a little portion of the land that was granted b Don Jose Antonio Yorba I. 
The region was first under the control of the Spanish empire and then by Mexican control. Later on, Newport Beach was
 redeveloped for ranching, which was led by the James Irvine. The shipping industry in Newport was shaped by 
James McFadden. 
Another historical event that happened in Newport was the day when the Newport Beach was incorporated in the city 

last August 1906. From the Spanish period, the Ranchos in Newport Beach began trading with different merchants 
in the United States, especially in Boston areas. It was also the Ranchos in Newport Beach that traded with the 
English people and merchants in European areas. The trade that had been happening in Newport Beach happened 
around 1823 until the late part of 1848. 
Another event of significant importance in Newport Beach had been happening after the Ranchos were sold. 

Some entrepreneurs moved into in the area. They started companies. Entrepreneurs James Irvine and 
James McFadden explored the regions and started creating jobs and opportunities through their companies.
It may also interest you to know that in the early years, Newport had numerous names. Its rich history is filled with

 name changes, which include the names Bolsa de Gengara and Bolsa de San Joaquin. Did you also know that 
the settlers who arrived in Newport Beach created trade routes with different areas around it? That’s how the tourism
 industry in the region basically started.
In fact, in 1906, Newport Beach started openly itself more publicly. It started to become a tourist destination especially 

after the Pacific Electric Railway built its grounds in the region. The railway ended its route at the Balboa Pavillion. 
Then, in August 1906, Newport Beach became incorporated to become a city.
Another interesting event that happened in Newport Beach was when an Italian gondolier created a Christmas light

 boat parade in 1908. It became to be a pioneer in the series of celebrations in the region. From then on, there was
 now a yearly tradition that has still lasted even to this day.
