The George Taylor Jr. House is a historic house located at 187 North 400 West in Provo, Utah. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

This house was designated to the Provo City Landmarks register on August 22, 1995.

Built in the 1880s, this house offers an important example of the cross-wing house type in Utah. The cross-wing plan was a predominant form of late nineteenth-century construction. The house also portrays a style reminiscent of the Gothic Revival as evidenced by the laced porch and high-arched windows. These two elements, and the unusual craftsmanship of this home, make the Taylor House one of the best examples of the cross-wing plan in the state. Rounded-arch windows and door openings like those seen here are rare in Provo.
