STOCKTON, CALIFORNIA OVERVIEW
Stockton is in California’s Central Valley, in San Joaquin county. The Yatchicumne, a group of Northern Valley Yokuts people, were the initial inhabitants of the Stockton area, building their villages on low mounds as protection against seasonal flooding.
Stockton was founded by a German immigrant Charles Weber in 1849 after he and his business partner William Gulnac acquired Rancho Campo de los Franceses, 48,000 acres of land near the San Joaquin and Stanislaus Rivers. Weber later adopted the Spanish name Carlos Maria Weber.
Stockton, with its large inland seaport grew into a thriving commercial center after the discovery of gold in the American River. Stockton’s location at the junction of 2 rivers , 90 miles inland from the San Francisco Bay enabled the city to service both agricultural and manufactured products in Northern California. Agricultural has always been important to the local economy- today grapes, asparagus, cherries, tomatoes, walnuts, and almonds are grown in the area.
Stockton was officially incorporated on July 23, 1850. Stockton’s University of the Pacific (UOP) was chartered in 1851 and is the oldest university in California.
Stockton was also home to Johns-Manville Corporation that manufactured asbestos-containing products from the 1950’s to 1981. In approximately 1982, Johns-Manville sold its pipe operation to J-M Manufacturing Company and J-M A/C Pipe Corporation.
In 2012, facing over $2 billion in long-term debt the City of Stockton filed for Chapter 9 Bankruptcy, the largest American City in history to take this action
