August 2023 - Whitehorse Yukon 

The Taylor House was built in 1937 by Bill and Aline Taylor and their family. In 2015, it officially became Yukon Government House when the Office of the Commissioner of Yukon moved in. The Commissioner of Yukon is the territory’s Head of State and performs legislative and social duties.

Bill Taylor was the oldest son of Isaac Taylor who founded the Taylor and Drury business with William Drury in 1899. Aline Cyr’s family was one of the first francophone families in Whitehorse. In 1969, the family sold the house to the Yukon Chamber of Mines. Over the years, it was the home to the Yukon Heritage Resources Board and the Arctic Winter Games office. The exterior of the house looks the same as it did when built but the inside has been turned into office space.
