Taylor represents the best of Texas. Located just 30 miles northeast of Austin and surrounded by corn and cotton fields, Taylor has been the prairie, the railroad town, the idyllic country community and now the progressive edge of an urban landscape. Home to a community of more than 18,000, Taylor’s uniqueness lies in the heart of the community, in the richness of its history and in the pride of its heritage. The progress and promise of Taylor is most evident in its newest additions: the new Taylor Public Library, The Sustainable Technology Academy that provides training and industry support for emerging “green” technology companies, the tournament-grade Taylor Regional Park and Sports Complex and the East Williamson County Higher Education Center, a multi-institutional teaching center that boasts a partnership of Temple College, Texas State Technical College, Texas Tech, Concordia College and Legacy Early College High School.
You can catch citizens of Taylor as they celebrate their spirit with the many festivals (Black Land Prairie Days, rodeos, barbecue cook-offs, rattlesnake roundups, classic car shows, Annual 4th of July Community Celebration, etc.), participate in sports activities at the new Taylor Regional Park and Sports Complex, or enjoy personal or group activities at Murphy or Robinson Park including hike and bike trails, tennis courts and playscapes. Savor the unique flavor of Texan life as you stroll through historic downtown to admire buildings dating back more than 100 years, stop for some sizzling smoked barbecue, or tour exquisite renovated mansions, B&B’s, and a host of cultural and historic landmarks. Experience the gusto of Texas with a sprinkle of spirit, a dash of charm and a spoonful of heart from right next door.

“Since the new administration of the TEDC began in 2013, they worked tirelessly to insure our building process was a success. They were in constant contact to make sure we had excellent cooperation from all departments involved in the entire project. TEDC really made the move of JMF Materials LLC to our facility in Taylor a reality. Thanks for doing such an excellent job!”
