When its main industries of cedar felling and dairying were at their peak the small village of Taylors Arm was thriving. It had a boarding house built around 1890, then five years later the pub was built. Taylors Arm Post Office opened on 1 August 1891. Other stores were built including a bakery, butchery and a grocery store. There were apparently seven schools from Thumb Creek to Macksville. Medlow Primary School at Upper Taylors Arm now has approximately 30 students.

Gordon Parsons is an Australian country music singer, believed to have written the song "a pub without beer" based on the original poem "a pub without beer", written by Dan Sheehan of Ingham in North Queensland.

In 1943 Sheehan was a local cane farmer and drove 20 miles to his local pub in Ingham, the day Dawn hotel owned by the family of Harvey. When Sheehan arrived, Gladys Harvey told him that the American troops stationed near Ingham during the war drank all months the distribution of beer - beer was rationed during WW2. Sheehan went home dry and wrote a poem. The original day Dawn hotel in Ingham was partially destroyed and was replaced by the lees hotel, which still stands to this day.

Original poem Sheehan was published in Ben Bowyangs column in the register NQ in 1944.

In 1956, Gordon Parsons performed his version of the song in the Taylors arm hotel, when slim dusty asked if he Could record it. Parsons took the song to slim dusty, who needs a song on the B side of his record saddle boy.
