Long Description:
"The California Granite Company is a 7.2 acre site located at 5255 Pacific Street in Rocklin California and has been an operational granite quarry since it s inception in 1867 through 2005 . The significant features of t his historic si te are one open granite quarry pit, two wooden sheds, one wooden office building, one derrick, one bridge crane , one reciprocating gang saw, one wire saw and a set of railroad tracks. Various pieces of granite r emain strewn about the property along with va rious pieces of machinery from operation s throughout the quarry’s 150 year history. This site is an industrial setting with small gray pines, oak trees and grasses surrounding the perimeter of the property . Alt hough some portions of the sheds have deteri orated and some structures are missing components, this site retains strong physical integrity to the historic period and appears almost identical to phot ographs taken in 1900."
