Welcome to Mount Pleasant, Texas

The population of Mt. Pleasant is about 16,000 residents as of the 2020 Federal Census. Elevation is 404 feet above sea level.

Members of the Caddo Indian Tribe remained in the area as the first pioneers from the United States began to settle Northeast Texas during the 1830s. The Caddos were known as builders of large burial mounds. Legend has it that they spoke of a "Pleasant Mound" in the central part of present-day Titus County. It is believed that the early Anglo settlers changed the name to "Pleasant Mount", and later the name evolved to Mount Pleasant.

Nearby communities include Kilgore, Longview, Mt. Vernon, Sulphur Springs, Texarkana, Pittsburg, Gilmer, Winnsboro, Daingerfield, Gilmer, Marshall, and Gladewater.
