Ivanhoe is a city in Tyler County, Texas, United States. The population was 887 at the 2010 census.[1]

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.[2]

The incorporation of Ivanhoe coincided with the incorporation of a neighboring community, Ivanhoe North. The creation of both cities was seen as the first step in a process to merge both communities into a single entity, making it the second-largest city in Tyler County.[2]

The merger of both cites to one City of Ivanhoe was approved by a vote of 194 to 60 on November 2, 2010.[3]


Ivanhoe had a total area of 3.6 square miles (9.3 km2), of which, 3.3 square miles (8.5 km2) of it was land and 0.3 square miles (0.78 km2) was water.[4] These are 2010 numbers, prior to the merger with Ivanhoe North.
