Temple, TX | The History
Founded in 1881, Temple began as a railroad town. Trains carried prospective buyers to the area for a barbecue and an auction of lots; those who bought a lot had the cost of their ticket refunded. In the months to come, more trains arrived with entire families and the material goods necessary for establishing a modern, civilized society although many families lived in tents or shacks initially. By 1890, the population exceeded 4,000, and within 20 years, almost 11,000 people had made Temple their home.
Before the turn of the 20th century, Temple boasted four railway lines that helped fuel growth. By 1910, Temple had 22 physicians, eight druggists, six dentists, 12 lawyers, 12 churches, three hotels, six restaurants, six cotton gins and a variety of other businesses. There was also a trolley car line connecting Temple and Belton, the county seat.
In recent years, Temple has continued to evolve, developing a complex economy that is seldom found in towns of a similar size. The town’s three major hospitals have made Temple a regional medical center, its rail access has led many companies to establish regional distribution centers in Temple and the town’s proximity to Fort Hood has provided a boost to Temple’s economy. In addition, two multinational companies have their headquarters in Temple. With a population estimated at 73,600 in 2016, Temple seems destined for continued growth.
