TAYLOR TEXAS
In 1876, the Texas Land Company began designing a town because of the construction of a railroad. The Land Company purchased about 500 acres from N. W. hunter for $2,505. Prior to the completion of the International & Great Nothern Railroad into the town, lots were auctioned in June and the Taylorsville Post Office opened on August 9, 1876. The town was named Taylorsville, after Edward Moses Taylor, a well known railroad official with the Houston Belt and Terminal Railroad. The early settlers were largely of two groups, those connected with the railroad, and merchants who came to the new town to set up their businesses.
