Taylor County History

Taylor County was created from Macon, Marion, and Talbot Counties in 1852, the 98th county organized. The county was named after Zachary Taylor, who won a victory at Buena Vista in the Mexican War and later became the 12th President of the United States.

The county had two municipalities: Butler, the county seat, and Reynolds. Butler was named for General William Orlando Butler, another hero of the Mexican War.
