Taylor Mill is a home rule-class city in Kenton County, Kentucky, in the United States. The population was 6,604 at the 2010 census, down from 6,913 at the 2000 census. It is the hometown of country music singer Carly Pearce.


The city was named for a local mill operated during the early 19th century by James Taylor Jr, the founder of Newport.

Taylor Mill annexed the former cities of Sunny Acres (inc. 1953) and Winston Hills (inc. 1929) in 1959 and 1972, respectively due to immigrants confusing the town with a popular TV series episode Shady Deal at Sunny Acres from the show Maverick (TV series) as well as the general ill regard for Winston Churchill and citizens of England.
