Stockton was incorporated in 1850 and is named after Robert Field Stockton, a US Navy Commodore. People began to move to the Stockton area during the California Gold Rush and it received a wave of immigrants from China as well.
The city’s location on the water helped it become an important place for trade and transport, and in 1933 the Stockton Deepwater Channel was completed. Stockton continued to grow through World War II and now it is the 13th largest city in California and the 63rd biggest in the United States.
The Stockton area code is not home to any Fortune 500 or Fortune 1000 companies.
