November 20, 1886 is a date the Templeton community will remember forever.
It is the day the first Southern Pacific passenger arrived in the new town of Templeton and it's something community members celebrated Saturday for Founder's Day.
Many celebrated the area's history at the Templeton Historic Museum and were treated to short history lectures and tours of the museum buildings.
People could also watch a demonstration by a working blacksmith.
This year, hundreds of volunteers who restored the 1932 Templeton school bus had the bus dedicated in their honor.
Before Southern Pacific completed its railroad from San Francisco to Los Angeles, the route ended in Templeton for a a few years.
During that time, Templeton grew immensely which is something the West Coast Land Company predicted before it bought thousands of acres of land there.
The new town was subdivided into lots where hotels, restaurants and saloons popped up.
Fast forward more than a century, now nearly 8,000 people call Templeton home.
