PATMAN, TEXAS. Patman, named for an early settler, is on State Highway 49 five miles north of Avinger in western Cass County. It originally centered around a switch on a narrow-gauge line built and operated by the Missouri, Kansas and Texas (Katy). The line was later taken over by the Kansas City Southern and changed to a standard gauge. The community had several residences, a rural chapel, and a cemetery in 1990. In 2000 the community, also called Patman Switch, had a population of forty.
