Taylor Part of the BC Adventure Network. Over a million web site visitors annually !

Taylor, 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.
