Templeton celebrates Founder's Day

People in Templeton gathered to celebrate the city's roots this afternoon.

Founder's Day is an annual event marking the arrival of the first passenger to Templeton after a train stop was built there in 1886.

The event also celebrates the town's agricultural heritage with a display of tractors, vintage cars, arts, crafts and even cow plop toss for people to enjoy.

"It's just a great opportunity, I absolutely look forward to it every year," said Bob Tullock, who lives in Templeton.

Templeton was settled back in the early 1800s but it started flourishing when the railroad came to town.
