What were property values like back in 1830 when Peter Coan, the first registered property owner in the area, purchased an 80-acre parcel from the US government? Taylor Township, as it was first known, became an agricultural center, but in May of 1968, the township incorporated and the modern city of Taylor was born. Today this bustling city includes an array of venues for outdoor enthusiasts, including walking trails, Heritage Park Petting Farm, the Lamarand Splash Pad, and the Coan Lake Historical Area, named for the first landowner, Peter Coan.
Heritage Park Petting Farm includes an annual Farm Camp during the summer to keep youngsters engaged in learning about the on-site animals and their local community. Another unexpected delight at the farm is Christmas in July. A visit with Santa Claus during summer break? What could be better? The petting farm is only a small part of Heritage Park that features buildings of historical interest, pavilions, a playground, a swimming pool, and a replica water mill. The Taylor Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens are along Northline Road and host the Music and Arts in the Park, a popular summer event with locals.
For golfing devotees, getting out on the green couldn't be easier than in this golf-focused community. Lakes of Taylor Golf Club featuring blue and bent grass, and Taylor Meadows Golf Club both offer well-maintained, beautiful courses, just waiting for your group. After a challenging day on the green, players and their guests love to relax with a drink and dinner at the Greenside Grille inside Taylor Meadows Golf Club. Lakes of Taylor features the Lakehouse Grille with a country club atmosphere and a beautiful view of the course. Sunday mornings feature a lovely Sunday Brunch.

The city of Taylor is diverse in the atmosphere of its downtown and residential neighborhoods. With a newly implemented 'Good to Great Neighborhood Program,' city departments and residents are enthusiastically jumping in to improve the atmosphere of Taylor. Parks, roads, signs, and trees and landscapes are undergoing an update. Beautiful single-family homes in modern settings, landscaped with newly planted trees and freshly rolled sod show this city is staying up with the times. Pride of ownership is evident in stately historic homes with huge well-established maples or colorful lilacs that seem to establish a presence that demands a second look. For anyone driving by, though, after enjoying the beauty, the next thought is probably about the amount of work that beautiful yards take to maintain. The gorgeous setting for family homes doesn't come easily. The magnificent green in front of the house means time and energy spent aerating and fertilizing the lawn. The regular mowing to keep that fresh-cut look demanded of Kentucky Bluegrass and fescue can become tedious. Raking up the beautiful autumn leaves is back breaking.
