Taylor House, also known as the former home of the Columbia Museum of Art, is a historic home located at Columbia, South Carolina. It designed by the architectural firm of Andrews, Jacques and Rantoul and built in 1908, as a two-story, "L"-shaped, brick Neo-Classical style mansion. The front facade features a projecting portico supported by large, fluted limestone Corinthian order columns. It was built for Thomas Taylor, Jr., who served as president of Taylor Manufacturing Company. In 1950, the Columbia Museum of Art converted the house for use as a museum. The museum added three wings. The original stables are joined to the main house by the Science Museum wing.[2][3]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.[1]
