Hand Train Station was named after George E. Hand, a German immigrant. In 1876 a rail line was constructed through Taylor and the train station was built near what is now Ecourse and Telegraph Roads. Hand Corners, as it became known, and nearby Taylor Center were the only populated areas in a vast farm region. In 1965 the station was destroyed by fire. This near replica was built by the Taylor Schools Building Trades Class of 1990-91. Architectural services donated by Yops and Wilkie.
