Anyone live in Taylor? My daughter received a job offer today at Taylor HS, so trying to get a feel of the area.

Graduated from there in 1989.

My mom and brother still live there.

I know a few teachers there also. If she wants to talk to anyone let me know and I can probably connect her to one of them.

Seems to be a pretty great city. Just the right size, all the amenities of a big city, plenty of land, and Mueller BBQ.

I used to work out there. The commute isn't too bad from east Round Rock or Hutto, if you do that you kind of get the best of both worlds. Does she bow hunt pigs? Granger is legendary and just up the road.

my daughter went to UT Tyler, for Nursing, she Loves Tyler, she is now working in Shreveport, but still drive to Tyler for Prayer study and often for church services , she want to move back, as soon as she can.. its a super nice community as the church she goes to has always been a great extended family for her.. as the Priest she has met are always so very helpful to her.. so i would not have seconds thought about her living there alone
as with any place , there are areas that look sketchy but that's normally where the best places to eat are located...

my oldest son, a grad of taylor and UT Austin, was the duck OC couple years back under coach purser. he made it the final 3 during their last ad hire. even thou he wouldíve been my selection, i do think taylor made the right choice with coach houston. his record is very good. wish him all the luck in duck land.

The AD is a good guy. And they have unbelievable athletic facilities. I would jump on an offer from there! Just far enough out of Austin but still big enough everything most people need.

Grew up in Taylor and still live in the area (Thrall area). My parents still live in town. Just like any town it has the good and the bad. The bad is the roads in town suck and Austin is moving in making it very expensive around here. The land next to me sold for $33k an acre!! The good is the school is new and it still has the small town feel (for now).

Born and raised in Taylor and operate a business here. The schools are getting better - new hires at Superintendent and AD. Home prices are going crazy and the town is growing. Getting a little too big for me - we are working on building a house in Granger.

UT Tyler is in Taylor? My youngest son recently graduated from UT Tyler. I never knew that.

Born and raised there, moved back to the area 16 years ago and moved back to Taylor 2 years ago. Town is growing, lots more to do here now than 5 or more years ago. Schools are getting better, they haven't had the best reputation in the past. I've met the new super for the ISD, I really like him, I think he would be a very good and fair boss. Not far from RR that pretty much has everything now.

Wow, good reminder how many tbh'ers live in the area. We use to have some good hh's back in the day.

You need to bring it to Taylor! We could make runs down to the coast. Matty is 3-3.15 hrs with a pit stop.

My wife's family has 250 acres south of Granger. Tired of getting outbid on land deals - giving up and moving to free land.
