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.

Here are a couple of my favorites that are for sale:

I grew up in a 1920’s home and my kitchen had the same linoleum

The neighborhood had Hyde Park feel without the price. You could walk to restaurants and coffee shops. Just north of the neighborhood, there is a park with running trail and duck pond.

I can’t wait to make the trip again, next time I will be sure to bring my camera.

About Ryan - For one I never really considered myself a hipster, but most of my suburban Co-worker thought so, I have a beard and glasses. So I ran with it.
