Sanderson is a census-designated place (CDP) in Terrell County, Texas, United States. The population was 861 at the 2000 census. It is the county seat of Terrell CountyGR|6. 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 was renamed in honor of an engineer of the former Galveston, Harrisburg, and San Antonio Railroad, since incorporated into the Southern Pacific.
