When gold miners first arrived on the banks of the American River, the history of Granite Bay began. A retired Park Ranger named Dave McGrath reported that on both sides of the river there were 37 gold mining communities.
A small mining camp, located just below Horseshoe Bar came to be called Granite Bar, in the earliest days. The Natoma constructed the North Fork Ditch and from 1852 through 1954, in an effort to attract settlers who planted almond and olive orchards, the company continued to provide water to the region in addition to permitting miners to surface gold. Immediately out from the boat launch ramp at Granite Bay, rows of stumps are still visible whenever the lake is low. At low lake level, in places next to the edge of the water above the dam as well as next to the trail that leads from the lake to Horseshoe Bar, remains of the ditch are still visible. In order to help preserve its visibility, in 1925, the sides of the ditch were concreted.
A man named Vivian Rasmussen reporter that what is currently known as the Folsom/Auburn Road was initially known as the Sacramento/Auburn Road. In order to permit the miners to transport supplies, in 1850, the road was constructed. In order to connect the different communities to the primary road or to the bar, Rattlesnake Road, Horseshoe Bar Road, and Whiskey Bar Road were all constructed. Granite Bar, was named after the granite rock that was quarried from its banks and used as riprap in the wing dams of Folsom Dam. The name was later changed to Granite Bay.
The availability of grassy slopes and water was taken advantage of by cattle ranchers. In 1956 the two primary cattle ranges were Grant Bender and Mooney. They government condemned much of their property so that a lake could be filled. People relocation into the region purchased the remainder of the ranches after they were subdivided.
In 1962, a woman named Neil Lester and her husband constructed a home in a tract of land. Two men named Louis Gavino and John Mercurio developed an early subdivision and named it Granite Bay Vista, which helped to make the name popular. Obviously, some things have naturally changed. East of Sunrise Boulevard, Rocky Ridge Road eventually became Douglas Boulevard. Along with the development and widening next to Douglas Boulevard, the ridge has long been demolished and the name Rocky Ridge has on significance for the majority of newcomers. In 1987, Granite Bay became the official name of the region. Prior to that time, the expanded housing developments around a portion of the lake were just as likely to be called Folsom Lake and were included in sphere of influence of Roseville as far as Barton Road for the purposes of Government Planning.
The lifestyle and objectives of the community of Roseville werenít consistent with those of the residents of the region and placed a proposition to be recognized as the unincorporated community of Granite bay before the County Board of Supervisors. At that time one of the assemblyman was a man named Tim Leslie, who issued a proclamation and the community became officially known as Granite Bay, with the approval of the County Supervisor. Subsequently, the area of influence of Roseville has been reduced to Sierra College Boulevard.
There is a unique and long history of Auburn/Folsom Road. The road began as not much more than oxcart tracks that linked mining claims by the 49íers next to the American River during the 1800ís, serving as a supply line between Folsom and Auburn. In addition, it also served to make some bandits relatively wealthy by lying in wait to relieve travelers of their valuables. The nicknamed Rattlesnake Dick was the most famous and brazen bandit at the time. He was nicknamed for the fact that prior to becoming a bandit, he has once been an honest gold miner at Rattlesnake bar and robbing travelers next to the Auburn/Folsom trail, rather than foe being especially sneaky. In 1862, parallel to the road, a spur of the Central Pacific Railroad was constructed, which ran between Folsom and Auburn. Some years later, the Spur ceased making its runs. The local residents were so outraged when the railroad workers started pulling up the rails that a shooting took place at the corner of what is currently known Auburn/Folsom Road and Moss Lane.
Allenís District was the name of the region prior to it being known as Granite Bay. A man named Hiram Allen was the namesake of the area. In the 1800ís, the Stallman family, the Cavitt family, as well as the Allen family lived in the region. The Stallman family lived at the east end of the road and the Cavitt family lived at the west end of the road. These days, the road is known as the Cavitt Stallman Road. A portion of the old 420 acre Allen ranch is occupied by Shelborne Estates. The agriculture mainstays of the area were pear, peach, and plum orchards. On the road currently known as Olive Ranch Road, olives were a primary crop at the ranch on the road. Just north of Douglas Boulevard, remnants of the olive trees are still prominent. Allen's District featured one of the first real estate ventures in the region known as the Rosedale Colony, where property sold for $50 an acre.
