Templeton Carriage Works
In 1905 it was moved from its original location near the Lutheran Church on County Road to its present site ar 412 Main Street where it has been used as a grocery store, dry goods store, saloon and hotel.
Perhaps as the “Central Hotel” this two story wooden building saw its most colorful days with a prime location opposite the Southern Pacific Depot, that brought crowds of hopeful settlers from the Midwest to start life in the bountiful lands of California.
Now the location for a true “turn-of-the-century” type business, life had begun again for this structure.
