What Bert Has To Say About Killeen-Temple Metro Area

Temple is a small Texas town with a transportation heritage starting with the 19th-century Chisholm Trail and continuing today with distribution facilities strategically located to maximize trade with Mexico and proximity to other cities in the state. Headquartered there is McLane Company, Inc., the nation’s largest convenience store supplier now owned by Wal-Mart, and Wilsonart International, a maker of plastic laminates. Temple’s nondescript downtown is currently undergoing a renovation with focus on points of historic interest. Temple is also home to the Scott and White Memorial Hospital and Clinic, a large regional teaching hospital.
