ROCKLIN

The city of Rocklin– at least its original economy — was built on granite. Thousands of cartloads and train carloads of it were hauled west and south in the early days of the 20th century. The bases, stone pilings and blocks of California’s State Capitol building, and much of Ft. Mason in San Francisco came from the granite quarries at Rocklin. Today, the tightly-knit community shares an emphasis on education with neighboring Roseville. There are eleven elementary schools, two middle schools and two high schools as well as the campuses of Sierra College and William Jessup University.
