Flats is at the junction of State Highway 47 and Farm Road 514, seven miles southwest of Emory in southwestern Rains County. The site was settled around the time of the Civil War. In the mid-1930s the settlement had a school, two stores, and a number of scattered dwellings. After World War II the school closed, but in the early 1990s a church and two stores remained. In 1990 the reported population was 100, but it grew to 646 by 2000.
