Alfredo S. G. Taylor (1872–1947)[1] was an architect, of the New York firm Taylor & Levi.

Many of his works are listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.[2][3] At least two, the Starling W. Childs House and the Frederick W. Rockwell House, both in Norfolk, Connecticut, were documented in the U.S. Historic American Buildings Survey.[4]

Hillside (Norfolk, Connecticut), was designed by Taylor for an heiress of the Remington Arms business fortune, and was built in 1908. It is one of his more "spectacular" houses.[5]

Taylor was the designer of over thirty buildings in Norfolk, Connecticut, in a wide variety of styles, in the four decades before the Second World War. He designed a lavish summer pavilion in Norfolk's Dennis Hill State Park, of which only remnants survive.
