Staffort means “constant ford” - the location was the only feasible place to cross the Pfinz River, and so was strategically important in the wider region already on ancient times. Excavations and artifacts that were discovered evidence a settlement existing near by the Pfinz 25 AD. The first mention of Staffort occurred in 1110 when the Emperor Heinrich V. named the village Stafphort in an official document.
