Stockton - Fresno-Madison Streets

Informational page only, our practice is limited to Residential Real Estate.

Although millions of public and private dollars invested in Downtown Stockton have brought a host of events to downtown's public urban parks and plazas, to entertainment facilities such as the Weber Point Event Center, the Stockton Arena, Banner Island Ballpark, and the newly restored Bob Hope Theatre. Exciting projects have been completed, including the new Marina with full service slips and guest/day docks, designed with an eye to boaters and pedestrians alike. 

Still downtown Stockton, an area of approximately 550 acres, has suffered as the surrounding city has grown. Due to the growth to the north, downtown is no longer the geographic or commercial center of town, but is left with a severely deteriorated retail function specializing in lower end of the market hotels and a poor, minority impacted social structure. Its uses are basically institutional and governmental in nature from 8:00 to 5:00 and is the largest center for elderly housing in the valley. The lack of pedestrian activities and amenities and the cross town aerial freeway connector leaves a negative feeling among the citizens.

It attracts a population of retired elderly, transient workers and vagabonds (males and persons over 65) who make Stockton their semi-permanent residence, taking advantage of the inexpensive living quarters offered in the deteriorating hotels and apartments and the food program of the senior service center. The majority of the housing units and hotel rooms are occupied by weekly or monthly renters. The area has a high crime rate (mainly assault) and is perceived by many as an unsafe place to go either in the day or night time. The edges are largely tattered, and the core area, mostly older 2-3 story structures, house the elderly and single poor.

Downtown Stockton has been designated a Stockton Enterprise Zone and the Redevelopment Area, designations from the state and city respectively, a myriad of incentives are available to business and property owners. These incentives are a   downtown attempt to attract new businesses and a destination for visitors and residents.

106 N. Hunter St. - Originally Mansion House, this building was constructed in 1873. The Mansion House was well known in early Stockton, both architecturally and within the business community. Located directly across the street from the county courthouse and one block east of the Channel, the building held a central location in the city. Before major alterations, the building was a strong example of ltalianate style-commercial building. It had a comer bay, an ornamented bell cap with cresting, a roof balustrade, and ornamental hoods over the windows. In 1947 the building was extensively altered and expanded to its present configuration. This new facade covers two distinct buildings, as the owners bought the building to the east and incorporated the two into one. This remodel irreversibly impaired the historic integrity of this building. The Mansion House has been significantly altered and does not individually meet the criteria of the· National California Registers. / Windsor Apartments - 1930 photo
Click to enlarge116 N. Hunter St. - Tum Verein Hall - Lambert's Liquors - This building was constructed prior to 1895 as a gathering hall, explaining the mostly windowless wall at the front elevation. The 1895 and 1917 Sanborn Maps note that the building was called "Turner Hall. n The 1895 map notes billiards, a stage, and scenery within the building while the 1917 map notes that there was a balcony and restaurant. Turner Hall was listed in the 1905 City Directory at 114 North Hunter Street. The 1895 City Directory reads "Turner Hall Saloon, Simon & Busch Proprietors, 116 North Hunter. n The 1930 City Directory indicates that the building was used as the Stockton Athletic Club. By 1945 the building housed the Church of God Rescue Mission. Then in ·1950 the building housed a Billiard Academy. Thifirmed by the 1950 Sanborn Map which reads "2 story pool hall. The building has likely been altered. Although the Sanborn Maps and City Directories recorded the building as Turner Hall, it has been noted as Tum Verein Hall, a German social hall. These social organizations were a common feature in German-American communities, a place for people from the same region of Germany to gather in their new country.  Lambert's Restaurant, Lambert's Sporting Goods
118-120 N. Hunter St. - Hanson Rooms - This building is identified on the 1950 and 1917 Sanborn Maps as a two-story masonry building. Since 1950, the front facade has been extensively altered with windows replaced on three stories. It is likely that another story was added and the building refaced since 1950. The 1895 Sanborn Map shows a building with the same front dimension, but with different overall footprint. City Directories indicate this building was use as a rooming house, as it is frequently referred to as the "Hansen Rooms from 1925 to 1950. The first floor commercial space was a liquor store during the 1940s. Information collected from historic photographs by the Stockton Cultural Heritage Board indicates the second floor of this building. was once used as a Chinese Buddhist temple, and that the building may have once had a Chinese style facade. 120 - Loren's Tavern

Hunter were vacant while 133 housed the Quality Print Shop. Then In 1935 the City Directory indicated that 127, 131, 133 N. Hunter were vacant. By 1940, 127 housed R. E.

America (including Stockton) went through an architectural period called the  Moderne Style from roughly 1930 through 1950. The Moderne style (sometimes called the Art Moderne style) is closely related to the Art Deco style which developed just before it. Both are part of the Modern Movement in architecture, a conscious break with traditional design in pursuit of a new aesthetic free from the styles and forms of the past.

Both the Art Deco style and the Moderne style are sometimes referred to as "Modernistic" for this reason, although the two styles are of distinctly different appearance. The Art Deco style with its smoothly finished wall surfaces and distinctive ornamentation of chevrons, zigzags and other geometrical motifs, led to the development of a new, more streamlined, less ornamented style of architecture, the Moderne style of the 1930s.

Influenced by advancements in the industrial design of ships, planes, railroad engines and automobiles, the Moderne style featured smooth walls with little surface ornamentation, rounded corners and curved glass. Moderne buildings have flat roofs, and bands of windows with a horizontal emphasis. Some buildings of this style have simple pipe balustrades, panels of glass block windows, curved canopies, or aluminum or stainless steel detailing.

City Directories indicate the building was in existence by 1905. The building served commercial and residential purposes. City Directories indicate that the. first floor store front served as the International Longshoreman's and Warehousemen's Union offices from 1940 to 1950. In 1935 the space was occupied by the State Board of Equalization. In 1930 the commercial space was occupied by the San Joaquin Tire Company. The residential space on the second floor of this building was frequently referred to as the Oriel House, likely a boarding house. The proprietor in 1905 was D. L. McAfee who also maintained a wine, liquor and cigar store on the first floor~. Then by 1910 the establishment was operated by John Weisberber who also had a store in the commercial space. By 1915 the OriHouse was owned by John Weisberber's widow, Mary Weisberber, The building was identified as Oriel House until the 1930s when it is simply listed as "Rooms or Deluxe Rooms ·The commercial space was listed as 140 North Hunter address while the residential spaces were identified with the Channel Street entry. It appears to have been constructed as a boarding house - Demolished for The Edmond S. Coy Garage

In 1927, the Brothers, with the considerable financial help of parishioners, built a new St. Mary's Boy's School on Lincoln and Magnolia Streets. With the Great Depression, it was exceedingly difficult to support two high schools, even with financial support from the Archbishop of San Francisco. In 1930, Father McGough proposed the consolidation of the St Agnes and St Mary's schools as being essential to the survival of even one. The Brothers, who declined to teach high school girls as a matter of policy, left in 1931. The Dominican Sisters taught at the recombined school-called St. Mary's High School—in the newer facility on Lincoln Street.
