Volunteer Years

By the 1960’s Sachse had grown to 359 and by 1980 the population reached over 1000.  While many Sachse descendants still lived in the area and many families  could trace their genealogy back to William and Martha Sachse, many new family names began to lay the foundation for Sachse as it became an Incorporated City. Among these were Barger, Stone, Foster, Hutson, Rasure, Ben Davis, Pyles, Sandifer, Salmon, Kriby, Burden, Himel, Stracener,  Anderson and many more. 

Sachse Today

Today Sachse has a population of over 25,000.  Many things have changed from the days when William Sachse caught the train into Dallas from the depot just steps from his copper roofed home.  Subdivisions now cover the old cotton and onion fields.  Businesses line Highway 78, Sachse Road has not been the only way to get to Wylie for many decades now. Sachse is on the brink of a new business boom the city hasn’t seen since the first shopping strips were built in the late 1980’s.  Yet all the while there is still the foundation of volunteerism, neighbor helping neighbor and the spirit of William Sachse lives on in the stories of how the city got its start and how it has grown.
