Trhová Kamenice is a market town in the Pardubice Region of the Czech Republic. It has around 900 inhabitants.
The town was first mentioned in records in 1439, although it was also mentioned earlier in 1242 as a gift written in a deed. The probable founder was the monastery at Vilemov.
In medieval times, the town was a trading and industrial centre. Its industries included ironworks, lumber, and charcoal.In 1945, this town was under Nazi occupation. As several Nazi troops were passing through the town from Chrudim back to Nazi Germany, they massacred 14 people while finding resistance partisans.
Hamlets Hluboká, Kameničky, Petrkov 3rd part, Polom, Rohozná and Zubří are administrative parts of Trhová Kamenice. Parts of Petrkov are administered by three different municipalities.
