  1. 50 Bayview st Newport City overlooks the lake and has many experiences told from tenants. When we moved there abt 4 years ago I was tapped on the shoulder when there as no one around and letter I heard some one say “help Me “. One night I saw a beautiful spirit woman float through my apartment and go through the wall into the apt next to mine .The next day I told my neighbor abt it and she had a shocked look telling me she had seen her also. There are also many stories connected to the building across from mine. These buildings were built in 1880.
