FLORES, TEXAS. Flores, a farming and ranching community a mile west of Farm Road 1333 and eight miles west of Poteet in west central Atascosa County, may have derived its name from that of the Flores family, who before 1900 had a large land grant in the area. During the 1940s the area had a church, business, and cemetery, but by the 1960s only the cemetery remained there. In the 1980s Flores had a business and a cemetery. Though Flores was still shown on county highway maps in 2000, no population estimates were available.
