We Preserve & Restore Rockin's History
Who We Are
As volunteers for this non profit 501(c)(3) organization, we are stewards of many of Rocklin’s irresplaceable historical buildings and items. We also encourage participation and awareness of Rocklin citizens by organizing tours and events so that
we can all enjoy Rocklin’s rich history.
The Mission of the Rocklin Historical Society is to generate community interest and support for the preservation of Rocklin’s Heritage.
Hank Lohse (President of the Rocklin Historical Society)
