On E Acacia St between N Pilgrim and N Union Sts, Stockton





State Plaque (in stone)


The bronze plaque was a victim of attempted theft, so it was removed for safe keeping. The stone base was carved with the plaque information.

From the Guidebook:

Donated by Captain Charles M. Weber in 1851 for use as a cemetery by the Jewish community of Stockton, this is the oldest Jewish cemetery in continuous use in California and west of the Rocky Mountains.
