Capitol Granite Quarry (United States)


Downtown Rocklin is astride a 100 square mile belt of high quality and easily accessible granite that extends from Folsom to Lincoln. Assisted by easy access to rail shipping, granite mining and creation of finished granite products formed the backbone of Rocklin’s economy from the mid 1860’s until the early 1920’s. The industry’s heyday began during construction of the transcontinental railroad.
