Taylor

The District of Taylor is a small municipality situated on the Alaska Highway in Northeastern British Columbia. The town sits on a terrace 60 m (197 ft) above the north bank, looking down on Peace River. The geography of the region helps to bless the region with good weather, year-round. The south-facing terrace and the Peace River form the Taylor Flats’ microclimate.  This produces more frost-free days than the of the Peace River region. Additionally, the rain shadow created by the Rocky Mountains ensures the town receives a suppressed amount of precipitation, especially snowfall.

A Step Back in Time

Located on the banks of the mighty Peace River, this broad plane has been home to the settlers of Taylor since the early 1900s.
Originally Taylor Flats, the area has been part of the Peace Region for over ninety years. In 1912, Donald Herbert Taylor (Herbie) and his wife Charlotte and their children settled in this area. He was a trapper and ferryman who maintained a Peace River crossing for fur traders, prospectors and homesteaders heading for the north. He also made a living by carving paddles and playing his fiddle for dances.
