Regarding The Finnish Temperance Hall. “Finn Hall”, as it is known to most Rocklinites, was built by the Finnish Temperance Society in 1905. In the early days, this most impressive building was used for most of Rocklin’s social functions, and graduations were always held here. School Christmas programs, receptions, dances and fraternal meetings were also the norm for “Finn Hall.”
