Cass County is a county located in the U.S. state of Texas. As of the 2010 census, its population was 30,464. The county seat is Linden. The county was named for United States Senator Lewis Cass (D-Michigan), who favored US annexation of Texas in the mid-19th century.

Cass County was formed in 1846 from sections of Bowie County. It was named for Lewis Cass, a U.S. Senator from Michigan who had favored the annexation of Texas to the United States.

The county was originally developed by planters for cotton plantations. By 1860 the majority of the population were enslaved African Americans, who were used as workers. After the war, freedmen worked largely as tenant farmers and sharecroppers into the early 20th century.

From 1861 to 1871, this county was known as Davis County, after Jefferson Davis, the president of the Confederate States of America. (It should not be confused with the still extant Jeff Davis County in West Texas.)
