History on a Pinhead

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.
