Welcome To Mount Pleasant, TX
A NORTHEAST TEXAS GEM OF A CITY!
While Mount Pleasant is located right off I-30 and an easy drive to the Dallas-Fort Metroplex, Shreveport and Little Rock, there's no reason to leave this thriving Micropolitan community where everything you could possibly need or want awaits.
Tall pines and a rolling terrain dotted with an abundance of lakes create a beautiful and serene setting for Mount Pleasant, the county seat and largest city in Titus County. But the entire region hums with an entrepreneurial energy and pace set by globally-recognized businesses like Pilgrim’s Pride, Priefert Farm & Ranch Manufacturing and Big Tex Trailer World. In fact, Mount Pleasant is considered by many to be the Horse Trailer Capital of Texas!
AWARD WINNING AIRPORT & RAIL ACCESSOur businesses benefit from having access to rail and the Mount Pleasant Regional Airport and its 6,000 foot runway. This award-wining airport also has an award-winning manager recognized around the country for doing whatever it takes to help corporate and private pilots land and take off safely on any given day, even Christmas.
MID AMERICA FLIGHT MUSEUMVisit the airport on a Saturday, and you're in for a real treat. That's the day that the Mid America Flight Museum is open to the public. Started in 2013 by Mount Pleasant resident and businessman Scott Glover, the museum is a stunning collection of aircraft from a 1925 Waco Nine to the 1951 Grumman Albatross. And everything at the museum flies or is being restored to fly.
THRIVING INDUSTRYHead over to Industrial Road and discover more prosperous businesses like Sweet Shop USA. Family-owned for over 40 years, Sweet Shop USA is the largest handmade chocolate manufacturer in the country supplying nearly 7,000 retailers nationwide. Both visitors and locals can pop into the corporate headquarters and factory showroom for samples, seconds and their own purchase of the fine chocolates and other gourmet items.
A NATIONAL AND TEXAS MAIN STREET CITY
In the heart of the city just a few blocks away, discover our historical Downtown District, which holds the distinction of being both a National and Texas Main Street City. Centered upon the Titus County Courthouse, built in 1895, Downtown Mount Pleasant is a charming destination where you can easily spend a full day strolling through delightful shops owned and operated by local entrepreneurs who are passionate about their products and services. Taverns, cafes and bistros present a culinary array that parallels anything you'd find in the big city, but it's oh-so-much-more-fun to nibble, sip and chat here. Especially when we are celebrating with special events like Christmas on the Square and the Annual Wine Festival.
BEAUTIFUL LOCAL & STATE PARKS
If being active outdoors is your kind of thing, Mount Pleasant is your kind of place. Boating, fishing, skiing, hunting, riding, hiking, running and organized sports are all options with 10 city parks, including the new 150-acre Mount Pleasant Sports Complex opening soon. Within minutes are the acclaimed Lake Bob Sandlin State Park and Lake Cypress Springs offering top-notch water sports, camping and picnicking. Mount Pleasant Country Club, overlooking Town Lake, is another great place to be outdoors with its 18 hole championship golf course, tennis courts, pool, full restaurant and bar.
AFFORDABLE HOMES & COST OF LIVING
Although our awesome Texas quality of life exceeds the norm, the housing and cost of living in Mount Pleasant is significantly more affordable than the national average. Home choices range from historical renovations near Downtown and newer family-friendly neighborhoods, to sprawling farm and ranch properties.
QUALITY EDUCATION & HEATH CARE
Students are served by Mount Pleasant ISD (Go Tigers!) as well as the Hart Bluff and Chapel Hill ISD’s. Higher learning and trade/tech training is also available locally at Northeast Texas Community College, and quality medical care is ensured by the Titus Regional Medical Center and related medical practices based in Mount Pleasant.
We have so much to be grateful for in Mount Pleasant. But, at the heart of it, you’ll find a common theme: Family. Big and small businesses alike are family-founded and operated. Scores of involved citizens are inspired by deep family roots to give back, including our own Mayor Tracy Craig, whose great-great-grandparents came to Mount Pleasant over 90 years ago. And finally, a strong sense of family runs throughout an entire community that takes care of its own.
This attitude extends to Mount Pleasant City Hall. From the City Council and City Manger to every staff member, we are committed to serving our citizens, businesses and visitors with expertise, and genuine care and concern.
