Flatonia merchant E.A. Arnim requested
that a spur be built here off the mainline of the San Antonio and Aransas Pass
Railroad. The spur was named after Arnimís daughter.
It was (like the
community named Lena just north along the railroad)
a shipping point for cut wood. Like Lena, Floy never
developed as much as a single business since Muldoon
supplied its needs.
Floy did, however, have its own school. Muldoon,
being a voting district and having a post office suppressed any chances of Floy
becoming a proper town although it did appear on early maps. A charcoal plant
near what had been Floy, is the most noticeable landmark.
