CITY OF TAYLOR CELEBRATES 50 YEARS.

The city of Taylor celebrated its fiftieth anniversary in October 2018. Though it did not officially become a city until 1968, the area has a rich history that dates back to the 1800s. Taylor was considered a portion of Ecorse Township until 1847, when it petitioned to become its own township in order to bring more people to the area. From then, Taylor Township gradually expanded and officially became a city in 1968. Current citizens of the area celebrated Taylor's 50-year milestone with free admission to Heritage Park and many of the city's historical museums and landmarks.
