Mission Statement

Preserving & Promoting the History of Roseville.

Description

The Carnegie Museum is housed in Roseville's first permanent library. The building was constructed in 1912 with brick and te rra cotta from Gladding McBean in nearby Lincoln, granite from Rocklin and Roseville labor on land donated by Roseville businessman A. B. McRae. This library, like many others built during the early part of the century, was funded in part by Andrew Carnegie. In 1979, Roseville moved its main library to a new location near Royer Park, and the building remained a branch library until 1982. The museum opened in 1988 after extensive restoration.

In addition to exhibits and information on the history of Roseville and the surrounding area, the Carnegie Museum offers a walking tour of historic old town Roseville based on a self guided tour created by the Roseville Chamber of Commerce Revitalization Committee for visitors, new residents to our area, and long-time inhabitants seeking a re-acquaintance with the past.
