Living in Rocklin, CA
The area now known as Rocklin was once covered with groves of oak trees and Digger Pine. Early miners of the time traveled through the gold mines east of Sacramento, but after the gold rush settled down, men were looking for new business opportunities. One early settler took notice of the granite boulders all around the Rocklin area and decided to open up a quarry. More European settlers traveled to the area that had opportunities for granite and railroad labor in the 1870s. By the early 1890s, roughly 30 quarries were open and providing high-quality granite to cities all around. Some of the buildings made with Rocklin granite include the Bank of Italy, now Bank of America; California National Bank; city hall and the county jail in Sacramento; Oakland Auditorium; and dry docks at Pearl Harbor.
After the Central Pacific Railway was built, the transportation system made it easier for people to ship granite from Rocklin to other areas. As the railroad grew in Rocklin, other industries did as well, such as wool, gold and irrigation.
