Named after the hybrid "Temple" oranges and the surrounding "Terraced" terrain, Temple Terrace was incorporated on May 28, 1925, and operates under the Council-Manager form of government. With an estimated population of 24,000, the city staff of 300+ and a host of volunteers are dedicated to excellence and providing public services unsurpassed by any in the area. The architecture of the community was developed in the Mediterranean Revival theme, as the Florida sunshine and climate reminded many of exotic locales such as the Mediterranean area and Spain, and developers sought to capture this mystique in the architecture of the community. Red barrel tiles from Spain and Cuba certified to be 100+ years old were imported for the roofs of over 80 homes that were built in this style during the early 1920s. Many of these homes have been restored and can be seen alongside the modern architecture of homes today. The golf course, designed by famed Scottish designer Tom Bendelow, is unique in that it winds through Temple Terrace so that no two holes run side-by-side. Temple Terrace is an attractive destination for residents and businesses alike because of its convenient location and the natural beauty of the area.
