TVCC was founded in 1946 as Henderson County Junior College in Athens, the county seat, and adopted its current name in September 1986, which was taken from the Trinity River which bisects the region.
TVCC would begin its expansion to a multi-site campus in 1969 when it began to offer courses at a nearby Texas Department of Criminal Justice unit. In 1972 TVCC started offering courses in Palestine (the Anderson County seat), and in 1975 would open a separate campus facility three miles north of town. In 1973 TVCC started offering courses in Terrell (its first expansion into neighboring Kaufman County) and would open a separate campus facility there in 1986. Finally, in 1983 TVCC would open its first specialized campus, the TVCC Health Science Center in Kaufman (the Kaufman County seat).
