The archaic recorded concern in Taylor county probably occurred in 1661, when Wisconsin was share of New France. A band of Huron Indians from eastern Ontario had fled the Iroquois and taken refuge near the headwaters of the Black River, probably in the region of Lake Chelsea in the northeast share of the county. Father René Menard, a French Jesuit priest who had travelled occurring the Great Lakes as far afield as Keweenaw Bay in upper Michigan, heard that these Hurons were starving. He settled to attempt to attain them to baptize them, despite his own feeble health and scant supplies. In mid-summer he and a French fur trader set out, following rivers and streams in birchbark canoes next to into Wisconsin. Finally, a day’s journey from the Huron camp, Father Menard on bad terms from his travelling companion at a rapids to carry some supplies. He was never seen again. The place where he disappeared is believed to be the dells of the enormous Rib River, below Goodrich in the southeast corner of Taylor county.
On June 8, 1847, before any settlers or loggers, a team of surveyors entered the county southwest of Medford, where County E now enters from Clark County. They were effective for the U.S. government, marking a north–south pedigree called the Fourth Principal Meridian, from which much of the estate in the welcome would be measured. For six days they worked their quirk through woods and swamps, up what is now the southern ration of E and across the valley that is now the Mondeaux Flowage, before continuing north into what is now Price County. The head of the team wrote of the trip:
On their pretension through the county, they and further surveyors recorded a forest then dominated by hemlock, yellow birch and sugar maple, with white pine the fourth or sixth most frequent. The amalgamation of tree species then resembled today’s Gerstberger Pines grove southeast of Rib Lake.
Logging began in the late 1850s. Loggers came from Cortland County, New York, Carroll County, New Hampshire, Orange County, Vermont and Down East Maine in what is now Washington County, Maine and Hancock County, Maine. These were “Yankee” migrants, that is to tell they were descended from the English Puritans who had fixed New England during the 1600s. As a upshot of this heritage many of the towns in Taylor County are named after towns in New England such as Chelsea which is named after Chelsea, Vermont and Westboro which is named after Westborough, Massachusetts. Medford was named after Medford, Massachusetts. Loggers came stirring the rivers and floated pine logs out in spring and ahead of time summer log drives, down the immense Rib River into the Wisconsin River, down the Black River to the south, and west the length of the Jump and the Yellow River into the Chippewa.
In 1872 and 73 the Wisconsin Central Railroad built its line taking place through Stetsonville, Medford, Whittlesey, Chelsea, and Westboro, with a spur to Rib Lake, on its way to Ashland. To finance building this line, the U.S. Government gave the railroad half the land, the odd-numbered sections, of a great share of the county. The railroad began to haul out the trees that didn’t float well. Most early pact was along this railroad, with few settlers in the west or east ends of the county even by the 1890s.
In 1875 Taylor County as soon as its current boundaries was carved out of the larger Chippewa, Lincoln and Clark counties and a bit of Marathon, with the county chair at Medford. The county was probably named for Wisconsin’s governor at the time, William Robert Taylor. At the grow old virtually whatever of Taylor County’s inhabitants were Yankee migrants from New England, which influenced the naming of the county, as William Robert Taylor was from Connecticut of English descent. It was initially at odds into four towns—Westboro, Chelsea, Medford and Little Black—each stretching the width of the county.
From almost 1902 to 1905 the Stanley, Merrill and Phillips Railway ran a line taking place the west subside of the county through Polley, Gilman, Hannibal and Jump River. In 1902 the Eau Claire, Chippewa Falls, and Northeastern Railroad (better known as Omaha) pushed in from Holcombe through Hannibal to now-abandoned Hughey upon the Yellow River. In 1905 the Wisconsin Central Railroad built its extraction through Clark (now a ghost town), Lublin, Polley, Gilman and Donald, heading for Superior. The SM&P and Omaha were primarily logging railroads, which hauled out lumber and incidentally transported passengers and further cargo. With the lumber gone, the SM&P shut by the side of in 1933.
After the great timber was gone, the lumber companies sold many of the cutover forties to farm families. Initially they tried making their vibrant in various ways: selling milk, eggs, beef and wool, growing cucumbers and peas, and various further schemes. But past long dairy had become the predominant form of agriculture in the county. By 1923 Medford had the second largest co-op creamery in Wisconsin. The number of dairy farms peaked just about 3,300 in the prematurely 1940s and had dropped to 1,090 by 1995.
Much of the cut-over north-central part of the county was designated ration of the Chequamegon National Forest in 1933. Mondeaux Dam Recreation Area and new parts of the tree-plant were developed by the Civilian Conservation Corps starting in 1933. CCC camps were at Mondeaux, Perkinstown, and near the current Jump River ember tower. Today hikers can follow the Ice Age National Scenic Trail through the national plant and the northeast corner of the county.
The major prematurely industry was the production of sawlogs, lumber, and shingles. Large sawmills were at Medford and Rib Lake. Medford, Perkinstown and Rib Lake had tanneries, which used local hemlock bark in the tanning process. Whittlesey had an in advance brickyard. Industry has diversified since, into creameries, window manufacturers, plastics, and food processing – mostly at Medford.
