Established in the early 1900s on the San Antonio and Aransas Pass Railroad in east central San Patricio County, the town was named for Charles Taft of the Coleman-Fulton Pasture Co. for which it was a shipping point. Other partners in the enterprise were named Mathis, Fulton and Sinton—who also have towns named for them. Today's economy is based on agriculture and diversified industries.
