at Milepost 37, on the Alaska Hwy, sits on a plateau overlooking
the Peace River and valley, and starts as soon as you cross the
Peace River Bridge. Named after a Hudson's Bay trader, Herbie
Taylor, who settled in the area in 1906, he was also a farmer
and ferryman. It was 1942 before (the building of the Alaska Hwy)
a bridge was built across the Peace River, this suspension bridge
collapsed in 1957 and was replaced in 1960. The early settlers
in this region were trappers and farmers, but today Taylor relies
on oil, gas, lumber and pulp to keep the economy lively . Due
to the black, light soil around Taylor, there are numerous market
gardens and if in season try some Sweet Taylor corn.
