History

Prior to the California Gold Rush the Nisenan Maidu occupied both permanent villages and temporary summer shelters along the rivers and streams which miners sifted, sluiced, dredged and dammed to remove the gold. Explorer Jedediah Smith and a large party of American fur trappers crossed the Sacramento Valley in late April 1827. The group saw many Maidu villages along the river banks. Deprived of traditional foodstuffs, homesites and hunting grounds by the emigrants, the Nisenan were among the earliest California Indian tribes to disappear. During the 1850s, miners sluiced streams and rivers including Secret Ravine which runs through Rocklin. The piles of dredger tailings are still obvious today, between Roseville and Loomis southeast of Interstate 80. Secret Ravine at the area now at the intersection of Ruhkala Road and Pacific Street was later mined for granite, some of which was used as the base course of the California Capitol Building in Sacramento, although the earliest recorded use of the rock was for Fort Mason at San Francisco in 1855. The granite was hauled out by ox carts before the arrival of the railroad many years later. In 1860, the U.S. Census counted 440 residents in the area of Secret Ravine, of which approximately 16% had been born in Ireland and the majority of whom worked as miners. The area was referred to as Secret Ravine or the “granite quarries at the end of the tracks” as late as 1864.

Rocklin’s history is closely tied to the transcontinental railroad. In 1862, the Pacific Railroad Act granted the Central Pacific Railroad land near Secret Ravine. In 1864, the Central Pacific Railroad completed an extension of its track southwest from Newcastle to Secret Ravine. It named the area Rocklin after its granite quarry, and used the site as a refueling and water stop. The Central Pacific built a roundhouse in 1867. The transcontinental railroad was completed in 1869, significantly increasing railroad traffic through the town. According to the 1870 census, Rocklin had grown to 542 residents, and the majority of Irish immigrants had foregone mining and were working for the railroad. In 1908, the Central Pacific moved its facility from Rocklin to Roseville, where more land was available for expansion. The site in Roseville has remained in continuous use since. As of August 2014, it is the largest rail facility near the US West Coast.

In 1869, a group of laid-off Chinese railroad workers moved to Secret Ravine to mine and raise vegetables which they sold locally. Due to a growing anti-Chinese sentiment, the Chinese community was driven out in September 1876 after a group of Chinese murdered three individuals near Rocklin. The area was still known as China Gardens as of 1974. The Rocklin post office opened in 1868. Finnish immigrants settled in Rocklin starting in the 1870s, and Spanish settlers arriving by way of Hawaii settled in Rocklin in the early 20th century.

What Our Clients Say

Fantastic and professional service!!

Oleg, Roman, Dennis & Dimitry moved our entire 3bd/2ba house from Sacramento to Davis last week and did a PHENOMENAL job for a very reasonable price. It only took them 6 hours which is very impressive since we had a ton of furniture and they had to disassemble/assemble three beds. They wrapped everything with exceptional care and were very friendly and professional. Not one thing was damaged, including the walls/doors of either house (and they had to do some tricky maneuvers to get a few pieces out!). I can't recommend them more!!

I am thoroughly impressed with this company. I called at 11:30am for moving help around 1pm the same day - since my moving plans fell through - and they were able to fit me into their schedule. I was told the movers would arrive between 2-5 and they came at 3 and were very friendly and professional.

After another moving company cancelled on my friend, this company was quick to pick up the slack and came the day of the move. They were super careful with everything and even took the time to play with my dog after we were all done.

Mason and his crew did a wonderful job! First, the booking process was really easy and I always received quick responses for all of my questions about the quote. They ask for pictures of your larger items to ensure they can transport everything. The crew worked really quickly and did a nice job packing up a lot of my kitchen items, which I dislike tackling myself. They took great care to move everything in to my our new house without causing any damage (perhaps could use a few blankets to cover the stairwell but that's just being if I had to be picky). The totally move (2-3 bed 2 bath worth of stuff) took less than 4 hours, which was speedy. In addition, kudos to Mason because he had the very difficult and annoying job of taking apart and putting our bed back together (which has a lot of screws). Would definitely recommend these movers!
