REDTOWN, TEXAS (Anderson County). Redtown is a rural settlement located in the southwestern corner of Anderson County on Farm Road 319, about sixteen miles southwest of Palestine. The community may have existed by the early 1900s, because 1936 county maps show a school, church, business, and numerous farms and dwellings in the area. In the 1980s a church and business still existed in the region. Redtown had a population of thirty in 2000.
