Mount Pleasant was founded May 11, 1848, to serve as county seat for Titus County, which was created by a legislative act on May 11, 1846. Until after the Civil War, Titus County also included present-day Franklin and Morris Counties. High waters along the creeks and the Sulphur River often halted travel in the early years.
The City of Mount Pleasant is served by the Mount Pleasant Independent School District, as well as Chapel Hill Independent School District and Harts Bluff Independent School District. Northeast Texas Community College is also located in Titus County.
