The residence of Captain Charles M. Weber, who founded Stockton in 1849, was located 450 feet west of this monument. The tower was often used by Weber to watch riverboats navigating the San Joaquin River and Stockton Channel. In 1917 the house was destroyed by fire.
The home site was part of El Rancho del Campo de los Franceses, Weber's 48,747 acre Mexican land grant. This included most of the present site of Stockton and extended south and east encompassing the heart of San Joaquin County.
