Preserving Our History
One House at a Time
Rockhead and Quarry specializes in saving and restoring historic houses in the San Francisco East Bay area. Our houses are all pre-1910 homes that are in largely original condition, but with updated systems.
We have restored bungalows, victorians, foursquare and chalet style houses. We have moved houses to new locations, and done extensive restorations. Our rental properties are houses with a great deal of history, where families have lived for many years – yours can too.
“These old buildings do not belong to us only, they belong to our forefathers and they will belong to our descendants unless we play them false. They are not in any sense our own property to do with as we like with them. We are only trustees for those that come after us.” -William Morris
“He who loves an old house never loves in vain.” -Isabel La Howe Conant
“A building does not have to be an important work of architecture to become a first-rate landmark. Landmarks are not created by architects. They are fashioned by those who encounter them after they are built. The essential feature of a landmark is not its design, but the place it holds in a city’s memory. Compared to the place it occupies in social history, a landmark’s artistic qualities are incidental.” -Herbert Muschamp
