Long before there was a Taylor County, this area was Creek Indian territory.  In fact, until the 1830's white settler's were sparse in these parts.  After the opening up of the area to settlers, this area became Muscogee County, then Talbot County and then portion of present day Taylor County.  We are bounded on the north and east by the Flint River.  This natural resource is one of the longest undammed rivers in the southeastern United States.  The river offers abundant fishing, canoeing and kayaking recreational opportunities.  In addition, there are several protected plant, aquatic and animal species in this watershed area. 
Taylor County has a rich indian heritage because of the Creek Indians that inhabited the area prior to the Treaty of Indian Springs.  Along the Flint River are located numerous archaeological areas that date back to prehistory.  Also a part of the  Indian Agency Reserve headed by General Benjamin Hawkins is located in present day Taylor County.
