LEARN MORE ABOUT SACHSE TX
Sachse was founded by William Sachse, a European immigrant from Prussia, in 1845. Purchasing 640 acres from the county, Sachse erected the first cotton mills and gins in the county. After Sachse gave 100 feet of frontage through all of 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.
Today, Sachse is home to such attractions as the Sachse Historical Society Museum.
