Learn more about Templeton

Templeton, California is located six miles south of Paso Robles and is surrounded by the beautiful California landscape. The local economy centers around vineyards, wineries, ranching and the businesses that support them. Templeton has a wonderful Mediterranean climate and though it is still rural it is growing quickly. It is known for its grapes, wine, horses and cattle ranches. Notable residents include baseball great Sandy Koufax, actor Josh Brolin, actor Stewart Finlay-McLennan and others. The community has a great small town atmosphere nestled in green rolling hills and yet is a short commute from numerous nearby larger communities like Paso Robles.

The community is located in what was once Rancho Paso de Robles Mexican land grant. It was founded in 1886 when Chauncey Hatch Phillips, of the West Coast Land Company, sent R.R. Harris to survey 160 acres that had been set aside for the development of a town south of Paso Robles. The land was laid out in business lots and residential lots of 5-12 acres each. The town was named after the young son of Charles F. Crocker, the vice president of the Southern Pacific Railroad. A large fire, in 1898, destroyed much of the original buildings in downtown Templeton, but they were soon rebuilt in brick. For a time the town was the last stop on the Southern Pacific Railroad, but when the line was continued further south Templeton became only a flag stop. Today there are not stops in Templeton, as it has become a bypass town.
