A brief history of Newport Beach: The Upper Bay of Newport is a canyon carved out by a stream and the Lower Bay of Newport was formed later on by ocean currents which brought in a tremendous amount of sand, which is now considered the Balboa Peninsula of Newport Beach. What is now recognized as the Newport Beach community, was originally inhabited by Indians and their relics are still visible. Believe it or not? the State of California originally sold acres of land for only $1. After hearing this incredible news, buyers from the Bay Area founded the San Joaquin Ranch (which is in close proximity to current day UCI), which helped facilitate this remarkable investment opportunity - the Pacific Electric Railway created a terminal in the city, which connected the community with Downtown L.A.

In the late 1920’s a home was constructed at the entrance of the harbor which is now called "The China House of China Cove" (constructed by an influential Chinese architecture). It was a landmark of the city until it was torn-down in the 1980’s. Today the Newport Bay estuary has been reduced to minimal water stream originating from San Diego Creek .
