Roseville is a city in Ramsey County, Minnesota, just north of Saint Paul and east of Minneapolis. It is one of two Twin Cities suburbs geographically adjacent to both Saint Paul and Minneapolis (the other is Lauderdale). The land comprising Falcon Heights, Lauderdale, and the southern area of Roseville was part of Saint Paul until 1948 when these towns incorporated.

Property taxes are some of the lowest in the Twin Cities, in part due to the extensive commercially-zoned land.[3] Several major shopping centers are located in Roseville, including Rosedale Center and the Har Mar Mall. The city's per capita retail spending is slightly higher than the city of Bloomington (home of the Mall of America), and has the greatest number of restaurants per capita in the Twin Cities.

Roseville is the location of the first Target store, built in 1962 and replaced in 2005 with a SuperTarget; the first Best Buy store (originally called Sound of Music); the first Barnes & Noble bookstore outside New York City; and the first McDonald's restaurant in the state of Minnesota.

Roseville is also home to the John Rose Oval, North America´s largest outdoor artificial sheet of ice. The 1995 men's Bandy World Championship and the 2006 women's Bandy World Championship were held here. The fifth largest board game publisher in the world, Fantasy Flight Games, is based in Roseville. Old Dutch Foods, the Minnesota Department of Transportation, the Minnesota Department of Education, and the Minnesota State Lottery are headquartered in Roseville.

Roseville's population was 33,690 at the 2000 census.

The city is the hometown of MacGyver and Stargate SG-1 star Richard Dean Anderson, WKRP in Cincinnati star Loni Anderson (no relation), Six Feet Under and Dirty Sexy Money star Peter Krause. In August 2006, resident Jim Kramer won the United States Scrabble Open in Phoenix to become the National Scrabble Association (NSA) champion.



Roseville's land was originally home to the Dakota and Ojibway. The first white settlers came in 1843, and the Native Americans had left the area by 1862. Rose Township was established in 1850; it was named after one of the first settlers, Isaac Rose. The township included the areas now known as Roseville, Lauderdale, and Falcon Heights, as well as parts of present day Saint Paul and Minneapolis. The area saw rapid growth through the 1930s and 1940s, and Roseville incorporated as a village in 1948 to accommodate. Falcon Heights and Lauderdale soon followed suit, and Rose Township ceased to exist.[4]


Rosedale Center is a major mall in the Twin Cities

According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 13.8 square miles (35.8 km²), of which, 13.2 square miles (34.3 km²) of it is land and 0.6 square miles (1.5 km²) of it (4.26%) is water.

The 45th parallel crosses the city; a marker half a block north of the intersection of Cleveland and Roselawn Avenues identifies this location. (Specifically it is at the northest corner of Cleveland and Loren Road.)[5]

Interstate Highway 35W, Minnesota Highways 36, 51 (Snelling Avenue), and 280 are the four main routes through the city.


This SuperTarget sits on the site of the first Target store, which opened in 1962 and was torn down and replaced by this much larger store in 2005.
The headquarters of Old Dutch Foods is in Roseville.

As of the census[1] of 2000, there were 33,690 people, 14,598 households, and 8,598 families residing in the city. The population density was 2,543.9 people per square mile (982.5/km²). There were 14,917 housing units at an average density of 1,126.4/sq mi (435.0/km²).

Hispanic or Latino of any race were 1.97% of the population.

There were 14,598 households out of which 22.2% had children under the age of 18 living with them, 49.2% were married couples living together, 7.2% had a female householder with no husband present, and 41.1% were non-families. 33.6% of all households were made up of individuals and 13.9% had someone living alone who was 65 years of age or older.
