Significance: The Hart & Thrift Building, designed in a vernacular interpretation of the Renaissance Revival style, was built in 1869 and is one of the oldest buildings in Stockton. Although the building has undergone substantial alterations, the building remains significant because of its extreme age and association with the early development of commerce in Stockton. The building's original owners, John Hart and E.E. Thrift, were two of Stockton's commercial pioneers and regarded as highly respected gentlemen. Their grocery store carried a "choice lot of groceries and provisions."
