Join us for an afternoon of Stockton Juneteenth Heritage to tour the proposed area toward establishing a National Historic Park within the Historic Stockton Waterfront District
The City of Stockton is named after Commodore Robert Field Stockton, first Military Governor for Alta California, his grandfather, John Stockton, donated land to create Princton University, New Jersey, his father Richard Stockton was one of 56 to sign the United States Declaration of Independence.
In 1846, the Historic Stockton Waterfront District began as an amazing regional transportation hub. During the California Gold Rush, the City of Stockton was formally established, July 9, 1850.
Today, the renaissance of the heart of the California Central Valley looks to our preserve our golden historical legacy. The signifigant contributions by Stockton residents of African ancestry (1840-1875) helped to postively impacted the region, state, nation and the world.
Rev. Jeremiah King, Rev. Reverend Virgil Campbell and Rev. Jeremiah Burke Sanderson helped create a strong and fertile Stockton Waterfront District Community, in partnership Capt. Charles Weber.
Many diverse members of the City of Stockton pioneer families lived together in the Stockton Waterfront District. A number of faith-based communities established churches to solidify the early Stockton Waterfront.
Both free and enslaved people of African Ancestry were apart of the tapestry being woven to develop the essential elements of the early City of Stockton at the dawn of the US Civil War.
