Why you'd want to live in Rocklin

Looking to move to Rocklin, CA? Located in Placer County, it has a population of over 61,000. The median income in Rocklin is $80,177 and the median home value is $352,300, which should give you a pretty good idea of its affordability. Today Rocklin is considered a bedroom community, however, the early Rocklin area, was made up of groves of oak trees with Digger Pine trees mixed in. The many Indians that lived in this area hunted small game for food and used the acorns, pine nuts, berries, and other plants that are native to the area for food. The gold rush of 1849 and 1850 had slowed, and men were looking for a business venture. In 1860 and 1861 after seeing the granite boulders above ground in the Rocklin area, Mr. Hathaway decided to open a quarry because granite blocks were needed for the California State Capitol that was to be constructed. The site of the first quarry was next to the huge outcropping of granite that still exists along the west side of Pacific Street across from where Ruhkala road joins Pacific Street. For these reasons, Rocklin got it’s name (Rock land). As Rocklin grew so did the Spring Valley Ranch. Joel Parker Whitney, Rocklin’s own remarkable western pioneer, in 1852, penniless and only 17 years of age passed through on his way to the Placer gold fields. Joel Parker Whitney returned to Rocklin, with his father George Whitney in 1856, to purchase the first section of 320 acres of land located at the edge of Rocklin and founded the famous Spring Valley Ranch, also known as the Whitney Ranch. The Central Pacific Railroad arrived in Rocklin in May of 1864 and extended onto Newcastle in July, 1864. Today you will still see the Granite prominent in much of the city. The schools in this city are top rated and the residents are very welcoming and friendly. With the city of Roseville connected shopping is very convenient and plentiful.
