In 1909 the city was incorporated. By 1929 the railroad employed up to 1225 people in its Roseville yard. By 1964 the 100 year old city was peaceful, self-contained and embodied the ideal of a small American town. The publishers of Look magazine named Roseville an All American City that year. Roseville has grown into a progressive city with a population of over 100,000.
