Templeton CA, Real EstateTempleton is a census-designated place (CDP) in San Luis Obispo County, California. The population was 7,674 at the 2010 census, up from 4,687 at the 2000 census.


Templeton is located on the Rancho Paso de Robles Mexican land grant. Templeton was founded in 1886 when Chauney Hatch Phillips of the West Coast Land Company sent R.R. Harris to survey 160 acres (0.65 km2) south of Paso Robles. This land was to be laid out in business and residential lots and 5–12 acre parcels for a town named “Crocker” after Charles Crocker, which was later changed to “Templeton”, after Crocker’s son. The town was the end of the line for passengers coming via railroad from the north; tourists disembarked here and took a stagecoach south to San Luis Obispo. In 1891 the railroad continued south and the town was reduced to a flag stop and is now a bypass. In 1897 there was a great fire which burned most of the business district. The town was rebuilt, but much smaller than it had once been.
