Tefft is an unincorporated community in Kankakee Township, Jasper County, Indiana.


Tefft was platted by Isaac Dunn in 1884, and named Dunnville. The name, however, became confused with Danville so Dunville was renamed Tefft after Dunn's brother-in-law, a Dr. Tefft.[4]

A post office was established at Tefft in 1883, and remained in operation until it was discontinued in 2003.[5]
