History

the text in this section is copied from an article in Wikipedia

The name of the village is derived from "Taopi," the Indian chief that befriended the settlers after the New Ulm massacre. It was platted in 1875 by the Taopi Farming Company in the name of John W. Wood. The first lot was bought by James Olberg and J. Martz opened a furniture store there before moving the operation to Le Roy. Taopi had the largest steam flour mill in southern Minnesota and it could process 300,000 bushels of wheat each year.
