Overview of Temple

Located in the heart of Central Texas, this charming town has been a favorite stopping point for people in the prairie lands for decades. A close knit community near Austin and Waco, this growing city has seen an increase in population with a 2011 estimate of more than 67,100 residents, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. With its warm spirit and togetherness, many community events and growing commercial and residential sectors, it is no wonder than many Texans are finding Temple apartments for rent to call home.

Living in Temple, TX

Like many other cities in Texas, Temple saw its beginnings as a railroad town. Once the Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe Railway expanded north from Galveston in the late 1800s, trains brought in prospective residents and businessmen attracted to the settlement's ideal central location. This new town was named in honor of the famous railroad's chief engineer, Bernard Moore Temple.

With its easy access to several areas around the state, Temple brought in a diverse population and economy. Many Texans seeking work in the fields of agriculture, transportation, manufacturing and medicine were drawn to the town to begin a new life. Once the city was incorporated in 1882, the city boomed and boasted two weekly newspapers, new schools, a waterworks system and even an opera house.

Today, the city has grown into one of the leading medical hubs in the Southwest thanks to its three major health centers and thriving healthcare business community.

The most popular institution in the area takes its name after the city itself. Temple College was founded in 1926 and has been a mainstay in the community ever since. This college offers two-year degrees in a variety of fields, including health professions in biotechnology, nursing, applied sciences, emergency medical services and diagnostic medicine. Since healthcare is such a heavily sought after field in the area, many medical students may be able to find work in the area by choosing their education here.
