Temple City Historic Resources Survey
The City of Temple City retained Historic Resources Group to complete a context statement and historic resources survey as a first step toward the development of a historic preservation program to protect the city’s historic and cultural resources. HRG conducted a detailed survey of the entire city, focusing on properties constructed prior to 1970. This survey was funded in part by a grant from the Los Angeles County Preservation Fund of the National Trust of Historic Preservation.
The historic context statement provides a narrative development history of the area’s built environment, organized by important themes and periods of development. It also identifies associated property types, architectural styles, integrity thresholds, and registration requirements to aid in the City’s ongoing efforts to identify historic resources in Temple City.
