The William Taylor House in Resaca, Georgia is a historic home, built in 1913, that is used as the town hall of Resaca. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2002.[1]

The house was deemed significant for its association with William Taylor, veteran of the American Civil War. And it was also deemed significant for its architecture, as a good example of a central hall plan house.[2]

William Taylor lived in the house for the last 30 years of his life. In 1938, at age almost 90, he attended the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg, where he was among 60 veterans from Georgia, and among the seven of those who fought for the Union.[2]

Taylor was likely born on August 25, 1848, and he died November 10, 1944 and is interred at the Resaca First Baptist Church cemetery beside his second wife Laura.[2]
