Refuge, a rural community thirteen miles northeast of Crockett on Farm Road 227 in north central Houston County, was probably established before 1900. In the mid-1930s the settlement had four stores, two churches, and a number of houses. After World War II many of the residents moved away, and by the mid-1960s only a cemetery, a sawmill, and a few widely scattered houses remained. In the early 1990s Refuge was a dispersed rural community. No population estimates were available. However, by 2000 the population was listed at twenty-seven.
