Facts about Temple City
Temple City is a city in Los Angeles County, California. Temple City is part of a cluster of cities, along with Arcadia, Rosemead, Monterey Park, San Marino, and San Gabriel, in the west San Gabriel Valley with a rapidly growing Asian population. Temple City also has a Cuban and Puerto Rican community, among other Latino nationalities.
The town of Temple was originated on May 30, 1923, when Walter P. Temple urchased 400 acres (160 ha) of land four miles (6 km) east of San Gabriel which had been part of Lucky Baldwin's Rancho Santa Anita. The original townsite (Tract 6561, recorded with the LA County Tax Assessor in June 1923) corresponds to the present-day area bounded by Garibaldi Avenue on the north, Baldwin Avenue on the east, Live Oak Avenue on the south, and Encinita Avenue on the west.
The town was originally called "City of Temple", but the Postmaster General demanded a name change in 1926 because the mail was instead being directed to the Phoenix suburb of Tempe. It was officially designated Temple City but remained a city in name only until after the post–World War II population explosion. The redundancy in the name City of Temple City came when Temple City incorporated on May 25, 1960.
Temple City currently has Sister City relations with the following places:
- City of Hawkesbury, Australia (Since 1984)
- Magdalena de Kino, Sonora, Mexico
