Setag was on the Waco, Beaumont, Trinity, and Sabine Railway 100 miles north of Houston in north central Polk County. In 1927 Julius Reinhardt leased a 347-acre tract to James T. Gates of Harris County for the purposes of mining and operating a silica plant. Apparently the site was named by reversing the spelling of the Harris County man's last name. In 1932 Reinhardt leased the tract to the Servtex Materials Company of New Braunfels. Although no community center exists, the sand and gravel operations are still marked on highway and geological survey maps.
