Taylor County

Taylor County, the 98th county organized, was created from Macon, Marion and Talbot counties in 1852. The county was named after Zachary Taylor who won a victory at Buena Vista in the Mexican War and later became the 12th President of the United States.

The Tuscaloosa Formation, located in the county, is a sand clay formation that represents the first prominent coastal plains deposits laid.

Butler was named for General William Orlando Butler who was another hero of the Mexican War.
