    After a long career in academia, Janetta McCoy retired to Taylor to create Pecan Manor Bed & Breakfast. Having practiced interior design professionally in Florida and Texas, she also taught architecture, interior design and historic preservation at Arizona State University and Washington State University.

    Wanting to retire in a historic, active rural community, Janetta found 819 Hackberry in Taylor to be irresistible. The house was beautiful and the community was warm and friendly. As a university professor Janetta focused on historic preservation in small rural communities and founded the Rural Communities Design Initiative. Raised on a horse farm, the mother of three, grandmother of eight, and mentor to dozens of aspiring architecture and interior graduate design students, Janetta has honed her entertaining skills for many years. Having travelled to almost every continent, her cooking reflects an eclectic approach to healthy menus and down-home comfort food.

    “My goal is to preserve a worthy, beautiful building. Developing Pecan Manor Bed & Breakfast is one way to model the value of historic preservation in a small rural community. And . . . I love living in this house in Taylor!”
