Inscription. Taylor's oldest existing home was built circa 1850 near what is now Pennsylvania Road between Telegraph and Beech Daly. Andrew and Elizabeth Strong and their children were the first family to live in the house. It was constructed on timbers atop a mound of earth, a common practice to avoid flooding. The cabin was donated to the City by Fred Miller in 1985 and moved here in 1986 using Community Development Block Grant Funds.
 
Erected 1993.
