Here's a nice commentary (and photo journal) from a recent visitor to Taylor TX.  If you've dreamed about being renovating a historic property - now's your chance. On September 30 2010, a live onsite real estate auction will be conducted for an 1883 Bank Building - without any reserve. Someone will get a steal of a deal!

While in Austin for Labor Day weekend, we ventured north to Taylor, Texas which is 17 miles east of Round Rock, Texas and 29 miles northeast of Austin.  Taylor is one of many small towns around our country that were built long ago and at one time had a booming economy. 

In Taylor's case it was founded in 1876 when the Texas Land Company auctioned lots anticipating the International Great Northern Railroad.  The city was named after Edward Moses Taylor, a railroad official.  Today the population of the City of Taylor is around 18,500.  Taylor is interesting for its historical downtown and with a little imagination could be renovated to quite an interesting Texas town.  View the photos below and what do you think?
