The community of Linden is
situated on what was known in the early days as the Mokelumne Hill road twelve
to thirteen miles from
Stockton in a northeasterly
direction, and two miles south of the Calaveras river. Originally this point was
known as the Fifteen-Mile House, and then as Foreman's ranch up to August, 1862,
when it was laid out by Mr. Foreman and given its present name by J. Wasley.
In the spring of 1849, when water covered nearly all the country around, two
brothers named William D. (a doctor) and John Trebilcock, who were freighting to
the mines, noticed the highest point of land in the valley on this route, and,
soon afterward locating here, opened a public house, which was at first merely a
rough board shanty. It was named the Fifteen-Mile House, on account of its
distance by road at that time from Stockton. In the summer of 1851 they put up a
better building, and afterward made additions. Subsequently these brothers sold
the house to C. C. Rynerson, who married their cousin, Mary Wasley, and who was
afterward sheriff of this county. The latter sold to Foreman & Beritzhoff, and
it was long known as the Foreman ranch.
Linden is served by
Stockton Metropolitan Airport, located on county land just south of city
limits. The airport has been designated a Foreign Trade Zone and is mainly used
by manufacturing and agricultural companies for shipping purposes. Since airline
deregulation, passenger service has come and gone several times. Most recently,
domestic service resumed in June 2006 with service to
Las Vegas by
Allegiant Air, and the days of service/number of flights were expanded a few
months later due to demand. Also in 2006, Aeromexico had planned to provide
service to and from Guadalajara, Mexico, but the airport's plan to build a
customs station at the airport was initially rejected by the customs service.
However, the possibility of building this station is currently a continuing
matter of negotiation between the airport and the customs service, and
Aeromexico has indicated a continuing interest in eventually providing service.
