Recently I was sent a citation about Taylorville. Since that little village has stirred so much interest, I wanted to post the links to the story. It appeared in The Normal Advance in 1909. The Advance was the yearbook of Indiana State Normal (now ISU) and featured essays, poetry and article by ISN students. It is quite well done and important because the students went to Taylorville and talked with some of the people. Thus it is an excellent primary source regarding Taylorville.
