Roseville is the primary city name, but also Granite Bay are acceptable city names or spellings. The official name is City of Roseville. The settlement was originally a stage coach station called Griders. In 1909, three years after the Southern Pacific Railroad moved its facilities from Rocklin to Roseville, the town became an incorporated city. The city was a railroad town for decades, with the railroad employing up to 1,225 people by 1929, out of a population of only 6,425 people. With the onset of World War II, the rail yards became busier than ever and the post-war building boom brought continued prosperity. In 1985 the population stood at 28,988 people. Five years later it was 44,685 people, and by 2000 it was 74,234 people. The population as of 2014 was 126,956 people. In 1988, the city embarked on a multi-million dollar plan to redevelop approximately 207 acres (0.8 km²) of land in the downtown core, and revitalize historic areas that had been in decline. A new parking garage opened in 2007, the Roseville Arts! Blueline Gallery opened in 2008, a new Civic Center opened in 2013, and the Vernon Street Town Square now features a small raised stage, a water spray for children, and a venue for community events. Some of this growth was fueled by the location of major employers, such as Hewlett Packard (in 1979) and NEC (in 1983). The growth rate was modest until 1985, when the population grew by only 22,563 people. However, the railroad remained (and still remains) a major employer, the expansion of the city began branching out into other employment sectors.
