Sachse is a city in Collin and Dallas Counties in the U.S. state of Texas. It is a northeastern suburb of Dallas. As of the 2000 census, the city population was 9,751, but as of 2004, the population was estimated at 16,200.[citation needed]

Northeast of Dallas, Sachse is approximately 1 mile (1.6 km) north of the President George Bush Turnpike (Texas State Highway 190) and Firewheel Town Center. Sachse is home to the 18-hole Woodbridge Golf Course, home of the Northern Texas Chapter of the PGA of America.

Sachse was founded by William Sachse, a Prussian immigrant, in 1845. Notable descendents of William Sachse include Russell Ingram, center for the 1973 Atlanta Falcons and member of the Garland Sports Hall of Fame, and Kaitlin Ingram, current writer and former Editorial Assistant for the Dallas Observer. Purchasing 640 acres (2.6 km2) from Collin County, Sachse erected the first cotton mills and gins in the county. There is currently a major historical revivalist movement, intending to restore several old buildings as well as create a local history museum.
