The Villagers

The village of Taylor offers a kind of treasure hunt for visitors to enjoy. Scattered throughout the entire small town are over 80 life-size paintings of "Villagers," depicting people of the past. These life-sized paintings capture the spirit of hometown history and hospitality as they mark various historic places throughout the community.
