If these walls could talk……You would discuss some of Stockton’s rich history! The home that Peter Milton Rindesbacher, Stockton’s first banker and entrepreneur, constructed in 1888. He and his wife Alice raised five children in this magnificent home. In 1938 Sophia Morgan purchased the Rindesbacher residence and converted the massive home to expand her nursing care operation. Thus, Stockton’s first Nursing Care Facility resided at 205 E Benton Ave. The home was then converted to a single family residence for many years. The home has since been converted to a main floor one bedroom residence, with two upper one bedroom apartments. This home could easily be converted back to a 5 or 6 bedroom home. There are three separate entrances for ingress and egress. The home has had many updates over the years; two 100 amp electric services with circuit breakers and most windows have been replaced. The home and apartments are heated by three separate boilers. The home has beautiful woodwork and built-in cabinetry throughout. The main floor is partially carpeted but has hardwood flooring throughout. This is one of Stockton’s finest homes built on a double corner lot near the downtown and close to the elementary school.
