Rocklin was first recognized as a destination along the transcontinental railroad in 1864, about the same time granite mining began. Rocklin was incorporated in 1893 during the heyday of railroad and granite mining activity. By 1910, 22 quarries operated in Rocklin and, in 1912, nearly 2,000 train carloads of granite were sent out of town to become part of the state capitol building and buildings in San Francisco.
Rocklin is now nearing the end of its growth phase. With few remaining large, undeveloped parcels and no opportunities for annexation, City leaders are shifting their focus from one of growth to long‐term sustainability. Rocklin must ensure that the City’s high quality of life can be sustained in the years to come. This shift in focus requires new thinking, new ways of doing things but also provides for new opportunities.
