History of Rough and Ready Island

Historic Rough and Ready Island has a rich and fascinating history. It is currently the West Complex at the Port of Stockton with this historic location situated in the central valley delta. While the delta created a challenging environment to thrive early on due to environmental transformations (e.g. seasonal flooding and colonization), what is known as the “Port” emerged from a natural wetland, became a well-known Naval base, and eventually a thriving economic engine of the state and an international trade center: Port of Stockton.
