Taylorstown Marker, G-4

Taylorstown, one of Loudoun County's earliest settlements, stands near Catoctin Creek, a Virginia Scenic River, at the junction of the Loyalty and Taylorstown Roads. Among the oldest structures in the village are Hunting Hill (ca. 1737), Foxton Cottage (mid-18th century), and Taylor's Mill (ca. 1800). Two frame Victorian houses and a mid-1930s general store also remain. Located nearby are other log and fieldstone buildings erected by residents of German descent and by Quakers loyal to the Union during the Civil War, thus giving the name Loyalty to this region. The 61-acre Taylorstown Historic District was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1976.
