Taylor Township was named in honor of Zachary Taylor, a national military hero in the 1840s who was later elected the twelfth President of the United States in 1849. Taylor Township was organized on March 16, 1847 from 24 square miles (62 km2) that were originally part of Ecorse Township, Michigan. It is 18 miles (29 km) southwest of Detroit. Taylor is a member of the Downriver Community. It is home to Southland Shopping Center, Wallside Windows Factory, Taylor Sportsplex, Taylor Meadows Golf Course, Lakes of Taylor Golf Course, Beaumont (Oakwood Heritage) Hospital, the Michigan State Police Metro South Post and Wayne County Community College Downriver Campus.
