The Temple Terrace Preservation Society, Inc. is a non-profit organization, founded in 1975 to preserve and protect the architectural and historical heritage of the city of Temple Terrace, FL through advocacy, education and community involvement.


The Temple Terrace Preservation Society's next meeting on Thursday, November 19, will be featuring local author and Temple Terrace resident, Dr. John Henry Fleming, and his newest book, Fearsome Creatures. Dr. Fleming will do a reading and signing of his latest book that's mystical, magical and funny, with an environmental theme about preserving what's left of Florida.

As CL writer Shawn Alff reviewed, "In Fearsome Creatures of Florida, Tampa author John Henry Fleming serves as taxonomist of Florida folklore, producing a wildlife handbook that could have been published by National Enquirer. This book breathes new life into real creatures and popular myths like the Skunk Ape and the Chupacabra."
