Seven Points is a city in Henderson and Kaufman counties in the U.S. state of Texas. The population was 1,455 at the 2010 census, up from 1,145 at the 2000 census.

The city is named for an intersection where seven roads converge.

The seven roads consist of two state highways (three directions), a farm-to-market road, and three county roads.
