Three Rivers is a city in Live Oak County, in the U.S. state of Texas. It is located at the junction of SH 72 and US 281, north-central of the county. The community was formerly named as Hamiltonburg, after Annie Hamilton, the land’s original owner. In 1913, she financed a railroad company to build a railroad station on her land. A townsite company was organized and the land was soon sold. Since the mails were frequently mistaken for that of the Hamilton community, the residents requested to change the town’s name. Moreover, a post office was granted in 1914 under the name of Three Rivers, in reference to its location by the rivers. Natural gas was soon discovered, a refinery was built, and the first glass factory was established. The town grew from then and it was incorporated in 1926. Three Rivers features a local lake with good fishing and two nearby state parks. Deer, dove, quail, and javelina can also be hunted in the area. As of 2010, it has a population of 1,848.
