San Joaquin County

Population, 28,629; agricultural. San Joaquin county contains 800,000 acres of land, the larger portion of which is susceptible of the highest cultivation and very productive. The principal product of the agricultural portion is grain, but many farmers raise a greater variety of crops. The location of Stockton, the county seat, virtually at the head of tide water on the San Joaquin, has always given her citizens water as well as rail communication with San Francisco. A line of steamers plies regularly between Stockton and San Francisco. The railroad facilities are as good as those extended to any interior locality on this coast. Stockton is a central point for the distribution of lumber throughout the valley, the annual sales exceeding 40,000,000 feet. The general trade of the city is large, and its manufactories are very extensive, including a flour mill with a daily capacity of 1,400 barrels, another with an aggregate production valued at $2,000,000, carriage factories, manufactories of threshing machines, and a paper mill of large capacity. Assessed valuation, $39,022,521.
