Discover the Roots of California’s Heartland

The San Joaquin County Historical Museum reveals the rich heritage of the region, from the Miwok and Yokuts Indians through Charles Weber (founder of Stockton and first farmer in the area) and the development of modern agriculture. The Museum has eight exhibit buildings and four historic buildings, including the 1848 Weber house and the 1866 Calaveras School. Exhibits include room dioramas of Weber family furnishings, a children’s activity area, and large displays of hand tools and historic agricultural equipment. The 18-acre grounds include the Sunshine Trail living exhibition of native habitats and the Delta Water Path. A Critter Corral of farm animals can be enjoyed weekends from May through August.
