Roseville is a progressive city with its eye on the future, but all the
while retains and celebrates its rich historical railroad roots. Located
in Placer County along the eastern edge of the Sacramento Valley at the
base of the Sierra Nevada foothills, Roseville is a mere 16 miles from
Sacramento, the state capital.
Typical of other California cities, Roseville's climate ranges
from hot, dry summers to mild winters. What started as a town developed
by disappointed miners from the famed Gold Rush has blossomed into a
thoroughly developed, independent city boasting an estimated population
of 118,788 residents.
