Inscription.
The Chinese community of Stockton dedicates this monument to the city of Stockton to commemorate the bicentennial year of 1976, in memory of the contributions which the Chinese have made to Stockton.

The ingenuity of the Chinese immigrants in agriculture, business, and the culinary arts were shared with the community. They imparted their cultural heritage based on the Confucian philosophy which emphasizes cultivation of human dignity, mutual respect, filial piety, social harmony, righteousness, virtue and world peace — “Under Heaven, One Family”.

The Chinese people are proud of the opportunity to contribute their ancestral heritage to the growth of the city of Stockton.
