Overview of History:

Mrs. Bertha Palmer, a well-known Chicago businesswoman, and socialite purchased the land that is now Temple Terrace in the early 1900s. Following her husband’s death, she focused her sights on the natural beauty of Florida, settling in Sarasota as her primary abode. She bought the property that is now Temple Terrace with the intentions of keeping it as a hunting preserve.

Mrs. Palmer died in 1918, and Burks Hamner, Vance Helm, Maude Fowler, and D. Collins Gillette bought her farm. The golf course and residential sections were constructed by two development organizations. In the 1920s, Temple Terraces Inc. owned and operated the world’s biggest orange grove, covering 5,000 acres. The suburb has been called “home of the largest orange grove”.

Temple Terrace has has a river running through it.

The Hillsborough River, which cascades past pristine sections of cypress and pine trees, flows under bustling public thoroughfares, and meanders through lovely conservation and park areas, connecting our city and its citizens. It’s teeming with animals and a refuge for birds. It is used by our residents for leisure and enjoyment.
