Taylor County was created from Macon, Marion and Talbot counties in 1852 and named for Zachary Taylor. Taylor‘s victory in the Mexican War Battle of Buena Vista boosted him toward the presidency of the United States. Butler, the county seat, is named for another figure in that conflict, General William Orlando Butler. In addition to Butler and Reynolds, Taylor County includes the unincorporated communities of Mauk, Howard, Rupert and Potterville.
