Taft in San Patricio County, Texas — The American South (West South Central)
Taft Agricultural Industrial Complex
As the company plan came to fruition, settlement and land values increased and the company realized a profit as it began selling off all of its holdings. Once solely a company town, Taft soon became diversified as the company presence gradually disappeared. Some of the industrial complex facilities remained in operation under private ownership until the 1950's.
Erected 1991 by Texas Historical Commission. (Marker Number 5189.)
