History

Tempo originally was a village in Westminster Township, Middlesex County. It had a post office until it closed in 1913. Most of the village was demolished in the 1950s during the construction of Highway 401. There was one church, called Tempo Presbyterian Church, which opened in the mid-19th century and closed down in the first decade of the 21st century. The building still stands, as the Rose Chapple, a wedding venue.
