Taft Oilworker Monument
Landmark & Historical Place in Taft, CA
Honoring those who supplied the energy to build a great nation. Dedicated in 2010, during Oildorado, the Taft Oilworker Monument is a beautiful bronze sculpture that depicts the life in the oil fields in 1910. The tribute to the men and women whose hard work and determination built the petroleum industry and, as a result, the community of Taft is commemorated through plaques and bricks honoring the individuals who have created our City.
The monument's artistic creator, Benjamin Victor has created the largest bronze sculpture West of the Mississippi, right here in Taft, CA. This larger than life sized monument is a beautiful tribute to our oil industry and all of the hard working men and women throughout the years.
The monument is located at the corner of Sixth Street and Supply Row, adjacent to the Rails to Trails. If you are in Taft, this is a MUST see attraction!
