Number of photographs documenting the history of Templeton is sparse and the organization is seeking assistance
– The Templeton Historical Museum Society has initiated a drive to collect and preserve copies of old photographs of Templeton. Recently purchased hardware will be used to store and display the museum’s archive of photographs that will help document and preserve the history of the town.
The number of photographs documenting the history of Templeton is sparse and the organization is seeking assistance from Templeton residents to help improve the collection. If you have photographs of Main Street, Templeton businesses, homes ranches, dairies, and citizens that would be of interest to the Museum Society, (even relatively recent photographs) you are encouraged to share them with the museum.
To share photographs, scan and email them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Most cell phones take excellent quality images of photographs in lieu of a scanner. The museum will also accept, scan, and return photographs if you do not have scanning equipment or wish to donate them.
The museum is open Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 1 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 the photograph, and other relevant information. For questions or for additional information, contact the society at (805) 434-0807.
