Also see . . .  Brief History - Temelec. Temelec Hall passed through several hands before being purchased by the Coblentz family in 1915, who lovingly restored the dilapidated structure. In 1961, the family sold the mansion and surrounding land to the developers of the Temelec retirement community with the proviso that the Hall be maintained as the centerpiece of the community.
