History: Newport Beach Real Estate
There are two well-known piers in Newport Beach. Newport Pier is the older of the two and was originally known as McFadden Wharf which was built during the late 1880s and named after James McFadden and his younger brother Robert. Newport Pier is now a California Historical Landmark, and is a popular spot offering spectacular ocean views.
Balboa Pier, was built in 1906 and is located closer to the Balboa Peninsula’s entrance channel and was constructed as a sister project of the Balboa Pavilion. To attract lot buyers both structures were built to coincide with the completion of the Pacific Electric Railway Red Car Line from Long Beach to the Balboa Peninsula. When the rail line opened on July 4, 1906, nearly one thousand beach-goers took the one-hour train ride on the red cars from Los Angeles to enjoy Newport Beach, Balboa Pavilion and Balboa Pier. Many purchased: Newport Beach Real Estate, land in Newport Beach, and it’s surrounding areas.
