The number of photographs documenting Templeton’s story is scarce and the organization is seeking help
– The Templeton Historical Museum Society has launched a campaign to collect and preserve copies of old photographs of Templeton. The newly purchased equipment will be used to store and display the museum’s photographic archive that will help document and preserve the city’s history.
The number of photographs documenting the history of Templeton is scarce, and the organization is seeking the help of Templeton residents to help improve the collection. If you have photographs of Main Street, Templeton businesses, residential ranches, dairies, and citizens that the Museum Society might be interested in (even relatively recent photographs), we encourage you to share them with the museum.
To share photos, scan them and email them to [email protected] Most cell phones take excellent quality images of photographs instead of a scanner. The museum will also accept, scan and return photographs if you do not have scanning equipment or wish to donate it.
The museum is open Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. When sending photographs, be sure to include as much detail as possible, including but not limited to location/address, names, date of photograph and other information relevant. For questions or for additional information, contact the company at (805) 434-0807.
