Medico-Dental Building


242 N. Sutter St.

Stockton, Ca 95202


Built in 1927, the Medico-Dental building was the Downtown Stockton’s tallest building. The 12-story commercial Gothic building was originally devoted exclusively to medical and dental professionals. The cornerstone reads, “Dedicated to the practice of medical service, and to the service of humanity.” The building’s lower exterior is gray terracotta and the decorative Gothic entrance motif is repeated on the 10ththrough the 12thfloors. When the great stock market crash of 1929 took place, two-thirds of the tenants were forced to leave. The Medico-Dental building is currently closed, and being repurposed for future use as Downtown Stockton housing.
