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.

Taylor County has licensed the CodeRED Community Notification System and CodeRED Weather Warning service to help disseminate important or critical information, along with alerting citizens in the path of severe thunderstorms, flash floods, and tornados. CodeRED's Weather Warning is an opt-in only weather warning product that taps into the National Weather Service's Storm Based Warnings.
