Taylor Mill is a home rule-class city in Kenton County, Kentucky, in the United States. The population was 6,873 at the 2020 census.
The city was named for a local mill operated during the early 19th century by James Taylor Jr., the founder of Newport. In 1810 Taylor purchased the land from Jacob Fowler, and the road from what is now Covington to the mill was named Taylor’s Mill Road. Others then moved onto the land, felling trees for lumber and clearing land for farming, which began the settling of the city of Taylor Mill.
In 1959 Taylor Mill annexed the former city of Sunny Acres, because its name confused newcomers who associated it with the fictional setting of an episode (“Shady Deal at Sunny Acres”) from the popular TV series Maverick. In 1972 the voters of Taylor Mill and Winston Park voted to merge the two cities.
