History

Established in the mid-1800s by Chinese immigrants who worked for the railroad, Antelope began as a bedroom community. The workers enjoyed their neighborhood but eventually moved to the next county and helped root Roseville as a viable city.


By 1973, Antelope still consisted of little more than a general store and a half-dozen homes. At 8:03 a.m. on April 28 of that year, a rail car loaded with aircraft bombs exploded in the southern part of the Roseville switching yard removing all traces of Antelope. The train was loaded with 7,056 defused Mark 81 aircraft bombs of 250 lb (110 kg) each and tanker cars carrying liquefied petroleum. The blasts from the Southern Pacific yard were felt in downtown Sacramento where the state Capitol building was closed due to concerns of its dome shifting with the concussions, windows as far as five miles (8 km) away were shattered and smoke was reported to have reached up to 3000 feet (900 m) into the atmosphere. Years later (in the late 1990's), a few unexploded bombs were found underground near the railroad site. While Antelope had expanded vastly to include suburbs neighboring the railroad site, the bombs were safely detonated with only residual damage done to the nearby neighborhoods.

Gov. Ronald Reagan declared a state of emergency for the surrounding area, but Antelope was reduced to charred wood and concrete slabs. No one was killed in the explosions, but the blast resulted in $7 million worth of damage to the rail yard, houses and businesses stretching from Roseville to North Highlands. Ronald Wilson Reagan (February 6, 1911 – June 5, 2004) was the 40th President of the United States (1981–1989) and the 33rd Governor of California (1967–1975). ...


As the surrounding areas grew in the 1980s and 1990s, so did Antelope. By 1993 the residents of the area voted to be recognized as a community recognized by the county and with their own ZIP Code (95843) which became effective July 1, 1994. By the 2000 Census the population had grown to more than 36,000. 1993 (MCMXCIII) was a common year starting on Friday of the Gregorian calendar and marked the Beginning of the International Decade to Combat Racism and Racial Discrimination (1993-2003). ...
