Satin, Texas is an unincorporated community in Falls County, Texas, four miles from Chilton. Satin is located in the north part the county, on Farm to Market Road 434.

History[edit]

Satin was established in 1872 after a sawmill was built near the current site, on Cow Bayou. The population grew when the San Antonio and Aransas Pass Railway built tracks there between 1889 and 1892.[1] Before Satin, the town was previously named Laguna and Cedar Point. Satin was supposedly the name of a railroad employee once a post office, which is still running today, was established in 1917. The population peaked at 200 residents in 1931 but dropped afterwards and fell to 89 by 2000.
