Backstory and Context
The Taylor family were loyalists and wealthy land owners. The family used the property as a farm and local place to discuss political issues until the Revolutionary War. Following the Revolutionary War, the Taylor family still remained as a prominent family in the area due to their prosperous farm.
The adjacent Taylor-Butler House was eventually constructed in close proximity to Marlpit Hall and was used as a lavish Victorian style home for later generations of the Taylor family (see Taylor-Butler House Clio entry).
