What will I see at the Historical Museum?

The focus is on early Temple City, 1920's through the 1950's with some information up to the present time. An example is our 'Heros' display of persons who lived in Temple City and who have achieved 'outstanding accomplishments' in their life or whom have made a 'difference' in Temple City by their volunteer work. There is an astronaut and an astrophysicist on display. Also there are many nostalgic artifacts from the past. Come and see the many interesting stories awaiting you!
