Penryn and Loomis
Penryn begins in late 1864 when a Welsh immigrant by the name of Griffith Griffith established a granite quarry on quarter section of land leased from the Central Pacific Railroad. A siding was completed on February 6, 1865, and the first load of cut stone was shipped less than a week later. In May 1871, Penryn was designated a voting precinct by the County of Placer. And the most “official” recognition of all came in June 1873 with the establishment of a U. S. Post Office. With that, you might say, the name “Penryn” was set in stone! Today this hidden gem is a place where people feel at peace, away from the crowds and a good down-to-earth community. Most homes are on larger lots and acreage, custom to semi-custom built and families enjoy having horses, goats, pigs, crops and irrigation water canals were set up to help generate enough water for the land. Penryn is a great small town yet close enough to shopping, restaurants and Lake Tahoe.
