Welcome to Anderson County, Texas
Anderson County, originally part of David G. Burnet's Colony, was once part of Houston County. In 1846 Anderson County was formed and named after Kenneth L. Anderson, who was the Vice-President of Texas from 1844 until the state's annexation. Ft. Houston and Mound Prairie both wanted to be the county seat, but by law it had to be in the geographic center of the county, so the city of Palestine as the county seat was established. Today the next most significant city is Elkhart.
