Tempe is not just known as a Pizza haven, but was called after the mansion on the southern financial of the Cooks River in the area that is now called Wolli Creek. Alexander Brodie Spark (1792– 1856), an immigrant from Elgin, Scotland, built Tempe Home in 1836. It was named after the ‘Vale of Tempe’, a gorgeous valley set at the foot of Mount Olympus in Greece, which was prominent in old Classical legend. Tempe Home, created by John Verge (1772– 1861), has a Georgian feel and is considered as among the fantastic homes of Sydney. Spark also gave away cash towards the purchase of land and the building of St Peter’s Church of England, which gave its name to the suburb of St Peters, to the north of Tempe.
