Sanderson is a census-designated place (CDP) in and the county seat of Terrell County, Texas, United States. The population was 861 at the 2000 census. Sanderson was created in 1882 as a part of neighboring Pecos County. It became the seat of Terrell County in 1905. Originally named Strowbridge, Sanderson served as a division point for the Southern Pacific Railroad, and was eventually renamed in honor of Thomas P. Sanderson, an engineer who was in charge of building a roundhouse for the railroad at the town.
