Walk with Weber – Walking Tour Introduction
125 Bridge Pl,
Stockton, CA 95202
Hello! I’m Manuel Laguna, tour guide and history presenter. Through the years, I’ve had the pleasure of leading many historical walking tours through Downtown Stockton. I consider it a real pleasure to have shared even a little bit of Stockton’s history with so many different groups. Founded in 1849, Stockton was incorporated as a city in 1850. Between 1849 and 1851, Charles M. Weber, Stockton’s founder, mapped out and planned the city several times. His vision was a modern, efficient, and drained city. Of course, his dream did come true, and, in fact, many people that live in Stockton today don’t realize that in its early days, Stockton was a cutting-edge city at the forefront in agriculture, industry, and commerce. My hope is that by taking this self-guided walking tour, you’ll be inspired to want to learn more about the rich history of Stockton, California, the Port City.
