The community of Taft is named after former American President William Howard Taft, who was in office from 1909 to 1913.
Taft was once a water stop for trains traveling along the former Northeastern Railway in Saint Louis County.
Although buildings such as the Depot, old schoolhouse, and railroad crew section house are no longer around; their imprints can still be seen.
Just opposite of the Ush-kab-wan River from Taft, was the community of Chrysler, which no longer exists.
