Roseville History

Though Roseville is now a growing city of almost 50,000 residents, it began as a “Erin” – a tiny farming community in the 1830s. By 1836, William Rose laid the foundation for the modern town you see today. He established the first permanent post office in the town and named if after his late father, veteran Denison Rose. The Roseville Post Office became the first of many facilities that would shape the town through the 1900s, along with the Town Hall and Municipal Building. Additionally, a wooden plank tollroad became the gateway from nearby Detroit to Roseville, ushering in brand new visitors. You can even see the official tollgate sign in the Roseville Public Library to this day! As of 1958, the town officially became the City of Roseville and the first mayor, Arthur Waterman, was elected.
