Even though today Taylors is the largest suburb in the Greenville/Spartanburg area, it began humbly.
Taylors’ history began with the opening of the Chick Springs resort community in 1840. Later, Alfred Taylor acquired land in the area and successfully rallied for the railroad to come through it. The railroad brought a spur track known as Taylors Turnout that developed into Taylors Station. The building of the station led to the economic and civic center shifting away from Chick Springs and coming to what was then known as Taylors.
By the early 1900’s, the apostrophe was dropped from the name and the area simply became known as Taylors.
Taylors offers natural beauty and outdoor activities for everyone. The rapidly expanding Wade Hampton Corridor and the close proximity to Downtown Greenville make Taylors a very convenient and popular home destination. The schools zoned for the area are consistently ranked as some of the top in the district. The diverse population adds to Taylors’ appeal.
Taylors is a vibrant community full of opportunities for employment, educational choices, and a wide selection of leisure activities. Its location makes it an excellent option for executives, families, and retirees.
