Temperley is a district in Greater Buenos Aires, Argentina, located in the south of Lomas de Zamora Partido.

History

In 1854 the industrial and textile merchant George Temperley (born in 1823 in Newcastle upon Tyne, England) bought from the Marenco brothers 51 hectares between the present streets of Dorrego, Almirante Brown, Eva Perón and Lavalle, and built a country house there. On October 16, 1870, Temperley set aside land from his extensive property for the establishment of a community, and participated in the building of both the original Lomas de Zamora City Hall and the Temperley railway station, one of the largest in Greater Buenos Aires.

In 1965 the town of Temperley was granted ciudad status by the Provincial Legislature.
