Those staying in corporate housing in Stockton, CA for business reasons might appreciate some information about the city’s business environment. Stockton was founded on an agricultural base, and slowly migrated to a diversified economy encompassing telecommunications and manufacturing. Its location between Los Angeles and Sacramento and proximity to I-5 make it a strategic fit for commuters to transact business between the two major cities. Real estate has been the crux of the new economy and, as a result of the 2007 property bubble burst, resulted in an disproportionately high number of foreclosures per capita. State and local government efforts in the wake of the collapse have seen the revitalization and turnaround of Stockton since then.

Being a temporary resident in Stockton, CA corporate housing need not subject you to being a complete outsider. Acquaint yourself with Stockton’s history by absorbing our brief historical summary provided below.
This area was originally occupied by the Miwok and Yokut Indians who settled in this area because of the waterways coursing the valley. The water provided food and a means of transportation to these inhabitants. In 1848, an immigrant named Captain Charles Weber settled in the area and, with the aid of William Gulnae, secured a land grant for a plot along the San Joaquin River. That was the start of Stockton in 1849. His first permanent residence is now called Weber Point.
As the Gold Rush heated up, Stockton, under Weber’s leadership, was positioned to facilitate hopeful speculators. The city evolved into being a River Port city with roads traversing from this hub to the mining villages in the surrounding area. It was eventually incorporated as a city, and the name was given in honor of Commodore Robert F. Stockton.
