Celebrating the distinction of being the demographic center of Texas, Temple is less than a three-hour drive from the major cities of Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio. In fact, 84 percent of the state’s population is within three hour’s drive of city limits. Founded as a railroad town in 1881, Temple is home to many regional distribution centers and is headquarters to two large, multi-national companies, Wilsonart International and McLane Company, and the Temple Bottling Company which produces Dr. Pepper (with Imperial Cane sugar).
Located near the county seat of Belton and just off Interstate 35, Temple is 65 miles north of Austin and 34 miles south of Waco and boasts a population of approximately seventy-two thousand people. Three bus routes within the city are operated by The Hill Country Transit District (The HOP) and they also provide an additional bus connection to Killeen.
Because if it’s central locale, Temple uniquely offers the conveniences of big-city living and the ambiance of a small town life. Homes for sale include properties of different ages, sizes and architectural styles which means single professionals, retirees and home buyers with children can all find the perfect home. With one high school, three middle schools, nine elementary schools, and three supplemental learning programs, the Temple Independent School District (TISD) is a good choice for any discerning parent.
In addition to a charming collection of antique shops, there are several retail centers located throughout town. Whether you’re looking for a romantic dining experience or an atmosphere suited for the whole family, one of the city’s many quality restaurants is sure to delight your palate. And don’t miss the Community Market located downtown. The market is held the second Saturday of every month (from March through December) and offers creative works by local artists, fresh jams and jellies, and unique gift ideas.
