Roseville City HallNational Archives and Records Administration, Neg. 12674-C
In 1936, the WPA completed the addition of this two-story annex next to the old city hall. At the time it housed a new jail, but no longer does so.
An excerpt from the archive photo below reads:
"This project has provided the City Police Department with a modern jail. The old jail was inadequate to handle the demand. The town being a railroad division point, results in numerous transients to deal with. Front view of City Hall – under this project the interior and exterior of building were remodeled and a new jail addition 10'x26' was built."
