Summary

Significance: Buildings 213, 214, 312, 313, 314, 411, 412, 413, 414, 510, 511, 512, 609, 610, 611, 612, 707, 708, 709, 710, 711, 712, 713, 805, 806, 807, 808, 809, 810, 811, 812, and 813 are contributing elements of the Naval Supply Annex Stockton Historic District. The historic district was determined eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places under criteria A and C, for its role in supplying the fleet during World War II and as an important example of new warehouse design developed during World War II. Specifically, Naval Supply Annex Stockton was the first Navy supply depot to be built entirely to accommodate palletized cargo. These buildings were directly related to the palletized cargo handling operation and other supply functions; it was one of 32 identical warehouses built just south of the transit sheds along the wharf. These 32 warehouses were the functional heart of the supply annex and represent the technological innovation for which the annex was best-known.
