History:
Modern day Roseville traces back to where the Central Pacific Railroad route was extended to Sacramento in 1864, nicknamed “Junction” at the time. The area grew in size when the Southern Pacific Railroad moved its center from Rocklin to Roseville, and on April 10, 1909, Roseville incorporated. After that, the city boomed, with more than 100 buildings and structures being erected within a few years, including the Pacific Fruit Express building in 1913, the largest ice manufacturing plant in the world.

With the dawn of WWII, the railroads became more important than ever and Roseville enjoyed post-war stability and gentle growth. But Roseville was still a mom-and-pop, sleepy community until 1985, when more people started moving there and new subdivisions were built. Starting in 1985, the population exploded from 28,988 to 74,234 people as of 2000.
