Welcome to Perry & Taylor County

Perry, one of several Natural North Florida towns located on U.S. Highway 19/98, is the county seat of Taylor County, Florida. Perry, population 7,000, is one of two Natural North Florida towns named after Madison Starke Perry, Governor of Florida from 1875 to 1861.  Perry is undergoing a rejuvenation of its downtown which makes it worth a stop if, for no other reason, than to visit the downtown and its eateries. Downtown is located just a few blocks off U.S. Highway 19 and U.S. Highway 98.

However, downtown Perry has more going for it than just food. The downtown is lined with interesting shops and features, including Rosehead Park. Perry is home to a number of festivals and events which draw crowds from the entire southeastern United States, including the Big Bend Brewfest in early March, the Florida State Bluegrass Festival in early April, the Smokin’ in the Pines Barbecue Festival in late September and the Florida Forest Festival held in late October.
