History & History Related Items

Rocklin history:

Rocklin really is built "on a rock." There is solid granite under it and all around it. It is highly sought after for its quality and ability to take a high polish. In 1890, as many as 30 quarries were operating at the same time. Quality Rocklin Granite is found all over the world.

After the 1849 gold rush had subsided somewhat, many people were in the general area looking for ways to start a business. One man by the name of Hathaway noted the abundance of granite boulders in the area and decided to open a quarry. The base core of the state capitol is built from Rocklin Granite. The railroad came into town in May of 1864 to manage the loads of granite which were being sent out. Before that time wagons with oxen were used to haul out the granite slabs.
