On September 10, 1870, Captain Samuel S. Dunnells and William
A. Abbott opened Newport Bay to commerce when they entered it for the first time
on the sternwheel steamer "Vaquero." The landing was designated "Newport" - a new
port - by James Irvine, Benjamin Flint, James McFadden, and Robert McFadden. The
McFaddens operated a regular shipping service here during the 1870s and 1880s.
