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 to be geographically adjacent to both Saint Paul and Minneapolis, the other being Lauderdale. The land comprising Falcon Heights, Lauderdale and the southern part of Roseville used to be part of Saint Paul, until 1948 when these towns incorporated.Fact|date=September 2008

Property taxes are some of the lowest in the metro, in part, due to the extensive commercially zoned land. [ [ City of Roseville 2008 State of the City Address] ] Several major shopping centers are located there, such as Rosedale 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 was the location of the first Target ever built (was demolished in early 2005 to build a SuperTarget which opened later that year), the first Best Buy store ever built (originally called Sound of Music), the first Barnes & Noble bookstore outside of New York City and the first McDonald's built in the state of Minnesota.

Roseville is also home to the John Rose Oval, the world'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, Minnesota Departments of Transportation and Education and the Minnesota State Lottery have their headquarters 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, Arizona to become the National Scrabble Association (NSA) champion. The town was also depicted as the hometown of sitcom character Mary Richards on the 1970s sitcom "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" (before the character moved to Minneapolis).


The land that Roseville stands on 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.


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 of latitude crosses the city: a marker half a block north of the intersection of Cleveland Avenue and Roselawn Avenue notes the 45th parallel. [ [ 45th parallel monument] ]

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