New Homes in the Stockton Area, 1903

These homes on the NW corner of Eaton Place and North 16th Street were built about 1903 shortly before Stockton School was built in 1905. In 1895 the only homes in the area were on William Street. The rest of the area had recently been low-lying farmland, and the landowners had just finished draining the land and laying out streets.
