Taylor, TX

Yesterday I had the pleasure of making the short drive to Taylor, TX.

My wife and I decided to make the drive there because I had remembered driving through at night and that they had a nice old downtown. When we started to drive into town I wasn’t sure if I had remembered correctly, but then when we hit downtown I knew I was right.

We started to drive north on main and just north of downtown this house caught our eye .

So then we started exploring and it was incredible how many old Craftsman and Victorian homes were in this town. If you drive just west of main street you’ll find homes built anywhere from 1860 to 1940. Many of them have been restored but you can find some that you could restore yourself for a great price.
