	<td width=1201 N. Pershing Avenue - The Haggin Museum - The San Joaquin Pioneer and Historical Society wanted to build a history museum but was unable to raise enough money. Robert T. McKee offered the group $30,000 in memory of his wife, Eila Haggin McKee, if the museum would be named for her father, Louis Terah Haggin and add a wing to house his art collection. The museum opened its doors to the public on Flag Day- June 14- 1931. Totem Pole photo by Ron Chapman.

The first addition followed the death of McKee's wife, Eila, in 1936. Wishing to honor her memory, McKee donated the funds for additional square footage including storage space on the ground floor and a small vestibule and main gallery on the second. When it opened on December 1939, the later named "McKee Room" contained paintings, furniture, and decorative art from the couple's New York residence, and it overlooked the rose garden behind the museum. Following World War II, the museum was once again in need of additional space for offices, storage, and most importantly, for exhibitions.

In 1948 Stockton architect Howard G. Bissel drew up plans for a 15,500 square foot addition that would run along the western edge of the existing structure. Principal funding for this addition came from the estates of Miss Jennie Hunter and Robert T. McKee, as well as a significant gift from Irving Martin Sr., owner of the Stockton Record. When it opened in 1949, the new wing contained eight new exhibit areas: the California Room, Jennie Hunter Rooms, Upper and Lower West Galleries, as well as the areas known today the Ancient Arts Gallery, Victorian Hallway, Arms Gallery, and Vehicle Gallery.
