Henderson County, TX

Henderson County can be found in the transitional region of East Texas and Central Texas. It is about 60 miles southeast of Dallas on US Highway 175 near the intersection of State Highways 31 and 19. Near the center of the county is the county seat of Athens, the largest city in the county.

This region is known for its wooded, rolling terrain, deep sandy loams and sands. Natural vegetation includes Loblolly and Shortleaf Pine, Sweet Gum, Post Oak, Southern Red Oak, White Oak and flowering dogwoods. In select areas Long-Leaf Pine, Black Gum, and Blackjack Oak grow. Henderson County features two lakes, Cedar Creek Reservoir and Lake Palestine, and has two rivers that flow through it, the Neches River and the Trinity River.

Settlement of Henderson County

Early settlers of Henderson County included the Caddo Indians. They were thought to have the highest cultural development of any Texas Indians. As agriculturalists the Caddo raised corn, beans, squash, sunflowers and tobacco. They would use dogs for hunting and lived off the land.

It wasn’t until after the Texas Revolution that people of European origin decided to settle the area. In 1836 the area was inhabited by Cherokees, Shawnees, Delawares, and Kickapoos who had migrated to the area several years earlier. Soon after the Battle of Neches President Mirabeau B. Lamar forced the remaining Indians to leave their homes and relocate to the Oklahoma Territory.  

In 1848 Van Zandt and Kaufman counties were formed out of Henderson County, giving the county its present day size. After changing the county seat three times, Athens was named the county seat and the first courthouse was built in 1850. It cost $50.

Present Day Henderson County

Henderson County is primarily a manufacturing county. Since 1956 retail trade has more than doubled and service jobs quadrupled while agriculture jobs have continued to remain steady. Residents and tourists enjoy the recreation and entertainment that Henderson County has to offer. Hunting and fishing along the Texas Forest Trail and the Texas Lakes Trail bring people to the area, along with the Fiddlers Reunion and the Black-Eyed Pea Jamboree.
