Sachse

Wikipedia says:

Sachse was founded by William Sachse, a Prussian immigrant, in 1845. 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.
