French second Empire style in Stockton, and is one of the more dominant facades in the city. The Henery Apartments was built by the Clark and Henery
Construction Company, a prominent local firm at the time. Clark and Henery built many buildings in Stockton, including the Clark Hotel and garage,
across the street from the Henery. The building is one of the larger apartment buildings in downtown Stockton, and certainly one of the most elegant.

Onlock Sam's Chinese Restaurant - 333 S. Sutter
333 S. Sutter St
. - On Lock Sam - Chinese. In operation for more than 100 years, this esteemed restaurant has obviously mastered the secret to
success. Of course, it's a simple recipe: plenty of good food, stylish surroundings, and an accommodating staff. Still, there's that intangible
ingredient that renders them so popular. While you muse over it, loosen your belt and tuck into spicy prawns, pressed peanut duck, black bean sauce
spareribs, and Szechwan pressed pork. Set dinners are also available, along with plenty of noodle, vegetable, and rice dishes. Lunch specials are a
great deal too.
The original On Lock Sam was located at 125 East Washington Street between Hunter and El Dorado. It was started by an unknown person in 1898. Wong Sai Chun and two
partners bought the existing business in 1920. Wong Sai Chun was from the K wangtung Province of China. He chose Stockton, the "third city. " over the other cities in
