The City boasts a high quality of life for its residents. We have all the amenities of the Corpus Christi metropolitan area with the quality of life and sense of community that smaller towns enjoy.
Located centrally in San Patricio County, Taft is part of the Corpus Christi Metropolitan Area. Taft is home to just over 3,000 residents. Often referred to as the “The Friendliest, Cotton-Pickin’ Town in Texas”, Taft is not only rich in cotton, but also gas and oil resources.
Taft was once the center of the Taft Ranch. The ranch was built and owned by Charles Phelps Taft, the half-brother of President William Howard Taft. The nearby city of Sinton, Texas is named for his father-in-law David Sinton. To find out more about the City’s history you can visit Taft’s Blackland Museum. The museum houses everything from antique farm equipment to personal and household items used by the town’s earliest inhabitants.
