Rocklin Quasquicentennial

When Delavan, Illinois approached its 125th anniversary in 1961, a resident wrote to Wilford Funk of Funk and Wagnalls asking what word described it. Funk couldn’t find one, so he invented the word “quasquicentennial” and it soon appeared in print and entered the English language. It’s an important word on this occasion, and it is a rare word in California -- only 94 other California cities are old enough to have had a quasquicentennial.  
 
The first time the word “Rocklin” appeared in print was on a Central Pacific Railroad timetable in 1864, when the company built its first waystation yard for what was to become the Transcontinental Railroad.
