Ivanhoe is a city in Tyler County, Texas, United States. In an election held on November 3, 2009, residents voted to incorporate the community as a "Class C" municipality by a vote of 160 to 53. In a concurrent election, Bill Preston was elected unopposed as mayor. A total of eight candidates ran for the two city commissioner positions. Those seats were won by Cathy Bennett and Will Warren.
The incorporation of Ivanhoe coincided with the incorporation of a neighboring community, Ivanhoe North. The creation of both cities is seen as the first step in a process that will ultimately merge both communities into a single entity, making it the second-largest city in Tyler County.
