Homes – Roseville
Roseville has a population of approximately 128,000 people. It is the largest city in Placer County – in Sacramento metropolitan area.
The community was originally a stage coach station called Griders. In 1864 the Central Pacific Railroad tracks were constructed eastward from Sacramento, and when they crossed a small California Central Railroad line they named the spot “Junction”. Junction eventually became known as Roseville.
In 1909, three years after the Southern Pacific Railroad moved its facilities from Rocklin to Roseville, the town became an incorporated city. What followed was a period of expansion, with the community building more than 100 structures, including what was the largest ice manufacturing plant in the world.
Today Roseville s a major urban city. It has retained some of its historic beginnings. Roseville is no longer a railroad town, but the Union Pacific Railroad is still the sixth largest employer.
