Model train display at Carnegie Museum.
Displays and Collections
Our collection of artifacts is large and varied. Our largest single collection involves the railroad. One entire room dedicated to train displays, including a layout that depicts old town Roseville in its earliest railroad days. There is also a small military display, historic musical instruments, kitchen appliances and tools as well as medical instruments. We also have maps of early Roseville, and many other period pieces all relating to Roseville history. The Roseville Historical Society’s Collections & Display committee meets each month to discuss and decide upon displays and the proper method to archive each donation. We welcome your display suggestions!
Cora Woodbridge display
Cora Woodbridge, was the wife of Bradford Woodbridge, one of our first elected City Trustees. Cora became the first assemblywoman to serve from this district and she held that post from 1923-1929. The dress she wore on her first day as a State Assemblywoman was generously donated to the museum to share with the public. Many of the bills she presented to the Assembly are also archived at the Carnegie.
