    You may already know of these places but just in case, it may do some good.

    Texas Ghost Town
    TAYLOR TOWN , TEXAS
    Lamar County, North Central Texas
    FM 1498
    15 Miles SE of Paris
    Population: 40 (1990)

    History in a Pecan Shell

    It is supposed that the town was named after early settlers who arrived sometime before 1900. The community had some commercial buildings during the Great Depression, but it's close proximity to Paris made further growth unlikely. After WWII, increased mobility allowed people to find work in distant places and by the 1960s, there were no businesses left.

    Now known as a "dispersed rural community," Taylor Town, along with it's near neighbor of Glory, Texas, have become ghost towns.

    Letter from a Former Resident:

    I'm from Paris, Texas. Well I was born there, but my formative years were spent on the outskirts of Paris in Taylor Town. Down the street was Glory, Texas. My family had an old general store in Taylor Town called Gordon Mart (now closed)... now all that is left is a cemetery where a few of my relatives are buried.

    Glory is less than a mile from the Taylor Town area and I think all that is left there are houses and a church my grandfather attends.

    These two towns were an important part in my family heritage, and to have them added to your site would mean the world to me. I don't want them to be lost forever. Thank you. - Heather Gordon, December 29, 2004
