Snowmobile Trail Report
|In 1830, Peter Coan was the first person to settle this Wayne County area. In 1847, Taylor Township was constructed. Jared Sexton was its first supervisor. The township was named for General Zachary Taylor, who was then known for his victories in the Mexican War. On January 12, 1863, this settlement was given a post office as Taylor Center. Mr. Sexton served as its first post master. That office remained in operation until February 15, 1914. |
From that day until Stanley A. Grendal became the first postmaster of Taylor on October 7, 1958, the town had been serviced by several adjacent post offices. The town wasn't incorporated as a city until May of 1968.
The most recent years of Taylor's history have been characterized by development and improvement. No longer agricultural, the community boasts comfortable neighborhoods, great schools, a variety of shopping opportunities and serveral industrial parks.
In 1996, President Clinton visited the City to dedicate the Public Works building and the renovated City Hall -- a historic day for Tayor. in 1998, Andrew Cuomo, the Secretary of U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, became the latest dignitary to visit the community. He praised the City's plan to develop the Southwest section of the community, calling the Villages of Taylor "a model for the nation".
