Sanger, Texas was established in 1886 as a stop along the Santa Fe railroad. Characterized as a small farming community, it was known for its cattle, wheat and corn. Located less than an hour outside of Dallas and Fort Worth, Sanger is now a thriving community that offers its residents the best of both worlds: big city opportunities combined with small-town charm.
