Was wonderful. We didn’t even know this was here. Way to go keeping the history alive.
1n 1910, W.S. Collins received the first city contract to run a ferry from Balboa to his new development, Balboa Island. His boat man was a loud, loveable man by the name of John Watts.
In Hollywood, he was a movie star, an Academy Award winner and a figure larger than life. In Newport Beach, he was a friend, a neighbor, a club member, a boater, a bridge player, a fisherman and first and foremost a father.
Joseph Allen Beek was the longest serving secretary of the Senate in California history, 1919-1968. Joe Beeked was born in Maine and established residency in California in 1907.
The New Balboa Island Museum pays homage to the island so many of us know, love and call home – and a place that continues to capture the imaginations and hearts of visitors the world over.
