The small rural town of Sunnyvale in Dallas County has a pretty fascinating history, as the amalgamation of the four towns of Hatterville, Long Creek, Tripp, and New Hope in the 1950s. A storm in the 1920s wiped out the most prosperous of these towns, New Hope, where shops, stores, and an annual fair called the Gala Days took place. The rest of the towns came together to form Sunnyvale, a name that the students of Tripp-Long Creek school gave to the town during a citywide school contest. Nowadays Sunnyvale ISD has three highly-rated schools and a population of approximately 7,000. Let’s head to Sunnyvale in eastern Dallas County for this week’s Suburb Sunday and three great homes to consider.
