Rocklin is located in Northern California. It borders Roseville, Loomis and Lincoln. It is located in Placer County. The official city website is http://www.rocklin.ca.us/ and has lots of great information about the city.

Guess this Sun Splash water park is actually in Roseville, but it's very close to Rocklin. We thought it was in Rocklin!

All the photos below were taken in June 2012

Rocklin Depot

The Chamber of Commerce is located in this new depot building.

This new depot was built in 2007. It is on Rocklin Road beside the Railroad tracks, at the corner of Railroad Avenue and Rocklin Road. The original depot here was built around 1867 in this same spot. There was a telegraph office and a saloon in the location. In 1891, the first depot burned and a second one was built up in its place. That building was torn down in 1940.

Old St. Mary's Chapel

The old chapel is one of Rocklin's oldest buildings. It was saved from demolition in 2005 when it was moved to it's current location. The park next to the church, as well as the building, itself, is used for weddings, receptions and general gatherings in Rocklin. The church has been renovated and looks great. The Bridal Patio has an interesting fountain with the round ball. The large marble ball appears to be moving constantly with water all around it. It islocated at 5251 Front Street. The Railroad depot cn be seen in the right background above.

The Finnish Temperance Hall was built in 1905. The Temperance Society was begun in 1889 to ease the concerns of families for the drinking problems of Finnish workers in Rocklin. At one time, Finns made up half the population of Rocklin. The hall was later sold to the American Legion in Rocklin in 1959. In 1962, the city bought it so it could be preserved.

The former home of Dr. Henry Fletcher back around 1905 when he was the town doctor. The building was his office and residence. It is located at 3895 Rocklin Road on the corner of San Francisco Street.

This City Hall building is located at 3980 Rocklin Road. It was built in 1912 by Adolf Pernu, owner of an early granite company. He built it to use as a company store for his employees. After he died in 1931 and the Great depression was in full swing, the company reverted back to the creditors. It was ultimately purchased by the City in 1941 and has been in use since that time as the City Hall. Early on, the city library was also in the building.
