Taylor South Eastside Project was created to detail the history of living and growing up on the south and east side of Taylor, TX. We realize that there is so much history cross the tracks in Taylor and a lot of rural towns all across this nation. The sad thing is it is being lost as the older generation passes on. We feel that it is so important to know where you come from because it makes you appreciate the journey of where you are going so much more satisfying.

So many of the young people do not realize that there was once a thriving community in these areas. Unfortunately, because of what is going on in the county right now it is more important than ever that they realize that they come from a community that valued cohesiveness.

We are very proud of our history and culture. We pray that we can ride the shoulders of the people that made the sacrifices so that we can achieve and be all that we can be!

“History, despite its wrenching pain, cannot be unlived, but if faced with courage, need not be lived again.” Maya Angelou
