Flatonia was founded in 1873 by the Southern Pacific Railroad. It was named Flatonia, not because it is flat, but for a local pioneer and businessman, F.W. Flato. The area has a diverse background with settlers of English, German, Bohemian, Czech and Italian coming into the area to live. Though people with many ancestral backgrounds are here, the area celebrates many of the dominant Czech traditions. The local weekly newspaper, the Flatonia Argus, has published since 1875. It is located at 214 Penn St. in Flatonia.
