  • History

    Temple Hills began in the 1860s when the famous Dr. Edward Temple lived in a mansion called Moor Park near Henson Creek. He was a major land owner of this neighborhood, so no wonder that this place is called Temple Hills. More residents began to move in here from neighboring communities, and with the growth of DC, this place also grew. More businesses moved here in the early part of 20th century, and this brought more residents.

    Temple Hills has a vibrant arts scene with Pave Performing Arts and Events Center on Branch Avenue and Annie's Art Gallery on Allentown Way. Both these places house the work of local artists and give a glimpse of the local talent.

Most people who work in downtown DC area prefer to take the Metro for work.
