Taylorville was a stop on the North Pacific Coast Railroad, and the site of the Pacific Coast's first paper mill, Samuel P. Taylor's Pioneer Paper Mill, started in 1856. As train service allowed easy access for vacationers and sightseers alike, the site soon developed into the Camp Taylor Resort. This destination boasted a dance pavilion, swimming, and accommodations in the Azalia Hotel, seen here, circa 1908. Built in 1880, the hotel was destroyed by fire three years after this photograph was taken.
