About Sachse, TX

Sachse is a city in Collin, County and Dallas, County in the United States of America in Texas and is part of the Dallas Fort Worth Arlington Metroplex. An eastern suburb of Dallas, the city population was 20,329, as of the 2010 United States Census Bureau with an estimated population of 26,046 people today. Sachse is located off Texas State Highway 78 and is approximately 1 mile north of the President George Bush Turnpike (Texas State Highway 190) and Firewheel Town Center.

Sachse was founded by William Sachse in 1845, a European immigrant from Herford, Prussia. William Sachse purchased 640 acres from Collin County, Sachse erected the first cotton mills and gins in the county. After Sachse gave one hundred feet of frontage through all his holdings to the railroad in 1886, the railroad built a depot on the frontage and named the town Sachse. Since the depot was labeled ‘Saxie’, many old legal documents referred to the city as ‘Saxie’. The flaw was later corrected. The word Sachse comes from the German word for Saxon.
