A phenomenal period of business and commercial growth accompanied the railroad expansion. Between 1911 and 1920, Lincoln Street and adjacent blocks continued to reap the lion's share of Roseville's retail trade. Soon the old buildings dating from 1906 and earlier were becoming increasingly obsolete and long time established businesses were receiving increasing competition from Vernon Street businesses.
In 1948, work started on the long sought after Washington Blvd. underpass designed to relieve the interminable railroad traffic delays at Lincoln Street which connected north and south Roseville. The completion of the Washington Blvd. underpass
By 1961, Roseville's Old Town had become largely a ghost town. This was the situation until 1977 when a revitalization movement was inaugurated by a group of new, young energetic merchants and business leaders eager to restore Roseville's historic Old Town business district.
Since that time the Historic District merchants and property owners, aided by the city and federal support, have worked with Determined Resolve To Restore Roseville's Historic Old Town as a vibrant business, commercial and cultural center of Roseville.
