Stockton's Miracle Mile


Miracle Mile Shopping

Disclaimer! Our practice is limited to Residential Real Estate.

In 1923, the very first shopping district outside of downtown Stockton, was conceived by Joe Plecarpo, a Stockton developer, who got the idea from a similar stretch known as the Miracle Mile on Los Angeles’s Wilshire Boulevard. Stockton's Miracle Mile grew from a few homes and fields where people went jack rabbit hunting to a continuous line of stores shops, most locally owned, where people received first name customer service. The heyday of the Miracle Mile was during the fifties and sixties. By the nineties its popularity had declined because of the construction of outlying malls and greater dependence upon autos. In the mid teens there were already several stores along Pacific Avenue. The Miracle Mile officially begins at Harding Way and ends at The Calaveras River, and takes in a few side streets

Stockton's economic growth is best shown through the transformation of Pacific Avenue. The changes began when the College of the Pacific came to Stockton in 1924. Until that year Pacific Avenue was only a dirt road, but by 1939 it had become very commercial. In the area between Castle and Harding Street nearly every form of business had successfully developed. It was so popular that within an eighteen hour period, 17,000 cars would pass through any given point.

The idea of the Miracle Mile in Stockton was the goal of developer Joe Plecarpo. He modeled Stockton's Miracle Mile after the one on Wilshire Street in Los Angeles, which was developed in the early 1920s. He followed the model so closely that he even purchased palm trees from an L.A. nursery, which still line the mile today. Alongside the commercial growth, residential growth also developed, helping the area gain a reputation of growing prominence and prestige.

The Miracle Mile is known for being a pedestrian-friendly shopping district, with a wide variety of specialty shops and services, between Castle Street and Harding Way on Pacific Avenue. In an effort to maintain and enhance the area, business and property owners formed the Miracle Mile Improvement Association (MMIA). The MMIA provides a unified voice for the area's business and property owners.

Back in 1945 the theatre was simply called “The Stockton”. It was the seventh theatre to carry the city’s name. Constructed at a cost of $150.000, it was the first theatre built away from thriving Downtown and quickly drew masses - turning it into an icon of Pacific Avenue’s “Miracle Mile”. Feb 6, 1945 marked the Opening Night of The Stockton with a Hollywood premiere - sneak preview. In the mid 1970’s the theatre was expanded into a four-plex. Three modern cinemas were added to compliment the 1000-seat grand cinema. It then became 'The Stockton Royal'. -
Through the next thirty years, the theatre changed hands several times, and while successive owners attempted to breathe new life into the complex, the Royal ultimately, gave way to the emergence of the megaplex, and ironically closed as a result of Downtown's City Center Cinemas' long anticipated opening. Under new ownership in 2005, a major updating  brought new life to the now renamed Stockton Empire Theatre. Today the Stockton Empire Theatre houses not only film screenings, but live performing arts as well. The Empire Theatre has been showcasing local theatrical companies and various stage performers. Additionally The Empire continues to make its auditorium available for independent and classic film screenings, art showings, jazz performances, musicals, dance, opera, ballet, lectures, banquets; and additionally serve as a studio for local independent film makers.

2100 Block Pacific Ave, 1920s - looking south from Doris Pl/Cleveland St, 20's. When the area was first built, the Miracle Mile consisted mostly of homes, 
especially on the west side of the street. As the commercial area developed, some were demolished, but most were taken from their foundations and moved 
deeper in to the neighborhood. It appears there were sidewalks only in front of the houses in this and other photos I've seen from this era. 1920s Pacific and Cleveland
