Three Rivers is a city in Live Oak County, Texas, United States. The population was 1,878 at the 2000 census.HistoryMrs. Annie T. Hamilton paid the San Antonio, Uvalde and Gulf Railroad to build a depot on her land in 1913. Then Mr. Tips, at the urging of Mrs. Annie Hamilton of Cuero, came to the Brush Country. Mrs. Hamilton owned a tract of land where Three Rivers now sits. Charles R. Tips organized a townsite company and sold land for the township. On July 4, 1913 with a grand opening and first sale of land the town began. From its formation it was designed as a segregated township, with the "Mexican" section located between the river and the railroad tracks, west of the business section. This can still be seen today in the differences of street names, even though forced segregation ended many decades past.The city is named for its proximity to three rivers, the Atascosa River, the Frio River, and the Nueces River (the Atascosa joins the Frio north of the city, while the Frio joins the Nueces south of the city). Originally named Hamiltonburg, the city name was changed when mail meant for the city was accidentally delivered to Hamilton, Texas instead. Tips suggested the town be named for its location near the rivers, and Three Rivers was approved as the new name by the post office department on May 1, 1914. Three Rivers was incorporated in 1926 and operates under the general-law aldermanic form of government. In 1925 its population was estimated at 1,000, in 1931 at 1,275, and in 1965 at 1,932, with seventy businesses.
