RED FLAT, TEXAS. Red Flat, a rural community ten miles northwest of Nacogdoches on Farm Road 343 in western Nacogdoches County, was established after the Civil War. A school was in operation by 1904, when it had an enrollment of twenty-four. During the 1930s Red Flat had a school and a number of houses. The school was closed around the time of World War II. In the early 1990s only a few scattered houses and a church remained in the area. No population estimates were available.
