Welcome to Taylor, Arizona!
Taylor is a town in Navajo County, Arizona. It was founded by Mormon settlers (James Pearce) in January 1878, several months prior to the establishment of the neighboring community of Snowflake, Arizona and later incorporated in 1966. Taylor straddles Silver Creek, flowing from the nearby White Mountains to the Little Colorado River on Arizona’s Colorado Plateau and lies in a broad valley at an elevation of 5,640 feet with the Mogollon Rim to its west and the White Mountains to the south. The mountains form an almost continuous barrier protecting Taylor from severe winters and creating a semi-arid climate. Taylor experiences four seasons with a warm summer, mild autumn, mild to cold winter and cool, windy spring.
The Taylor Town Logo is the Drum & Anvil- This logo represents two family traditions that have grown to include the whole town. The Standiford family tradition of “The Firing of the Anvil” every 4th of July at 4:00 a.m. with a loud BANG is first! Afterwards there is a serenade of patriotic music from the Jennings Band. The awakening call goes on as the anvil is fired in different locations around town. The unique tradition began with the Taylor Pioneers, revived in 1953, and continues still, drawing people home throughout the U.S.A.
A visit to Taylor is “a must” for all those wishing to experience a true, pioneer community!
