Roseville now has a renovated history museum! 16 new displays, all dedicated specifically to the history of Roseville, are now available for viewing. We also have a new children's area - a place for the young ones to play, learn about history, and basically have their own space while the adults browse the rest of the museum.
Our new gift shop is a delight for vintage items, jewelry, and good old-fashioned fun things for all ages!
Special off-hour tours can be scheduled for a donation of $20 for groups of ten or less; for groups over ten people an additional $2 per person is requested.
Did you know that the Roseville Historical Society has an archive room that is home to the Roseville Press Tribune newspapers that date back to 1908 when it was called the Roseville Register? Our collection dates from 1908-2009. The archives are open to the public for research, and appointment times are available. Walk-ins are also welcome but an appointment is preferred. This is a great repository for genealogical research, or if you are trying to find info on an event that happened and would have been document in the newspaper! We also have an extensive collection of directories and a collection of the Roseville High School yearbooks!
Preserving & Promoting the History of Roseville
Scanning and indexing our archives for preservation and access.
Using high-resolution imagery and information to relate the stories of Roseville.
We've been busy fulfilling our mission by preserving Roseville's history. With volunteer support, Roseville's newspapers from the past are being indexed for easier access. You could be a part of it too. Help us open a window onto the past as one of our volunteers.
As we continue to carry out our mission by preserving stories, photos and documents from the community, our view on the past becomes clearer. Sometimes connections are made or a new perspective is gained when we discover an unknown piece of information. Each historical tidbit we capture sharpens our focus and the historic picture becomes easier to see.
If you would like to be a part of history consider applying to join our museum family! We are looking for volunteers to work in the museum and docents to assist our visitors in learning our history. If you are interested please forward your information to email@example.com with the Subject Line of Volunteer Interest. We look forward to hearing from you!
