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 Crysler, which no longer exists.
