Templeton is a rather quiet town and like all towns has its positive and negative qualities. It is a tight knit community and there are lots of outside activities. The calming and quiet environment is pleasing! :)

I love Templeton because it is a small town. You can go to any event or fair and you see people you grew up with, went to school with, were in clubs with and so many other things. It's a historical town that has beautiful old homes. Everybody typically knows everybody and will lend a helping hand when it's needed.
I just moved to Templeton in August, 2018. So far it's been great. I moved from a townhouse to a single family residence with a little over an acre of land. I am excited to experience the spring and summer in my new home.
