Taylor’s Barber Shop
Taylor’s Barber Shop has been a fixture in Marion for more than 100 years. Rev. Thomas E. Taylor, who was born in 1863, founded the business. Taylor was known as the “white man’s barber” because he catered specifically to white clientele. The barbershop had marble countertops, bootblack chairs, and private rooms with bathtubs for travelers passing through town. Rev. Taylor died in 1935. His barbershop is included in the Marion Historic District.
