Sunset Valley History

One of the most intriguing things to know before moving to Austin, particularly the Sunset Valley area, is the region’s history. The history of the city of Sunset Valley can be traced as far back as the early 19th century when land transactions in the region were first recorded. More specifically, the local history of the town can be charted back to the Mexican colonization laws of 1821-1830. During this time, a land grant application was made to the Mexican government by a farmer named Theodore Bissell for the region that now stands as the city of Sunset Valley.

However, it was only much later - in September of 1954 - that the region was officially incorporated as a town. It started when two brothers by the name of Clarence and M.H. Flournoy purchased this large piece of land in the early 1950s to develop into a residential subdivision. Years later, the son of M.H. Flournoy would recall that people at the time believed that the brothers had made a big mistake by purchasing this tract of land since it is so far away from the much more populated Austin. One of the first things you will realize on moving to Sunset Valley is that as it stands today, the town is almost entirely surrounded by Austin and has become an integral part of the cityscape.

Over the following years, a number of people, enchanted by the beauty of the wooded town, started moving to Sunset Valley. At the time of its incorporation, Sunset Valley was already home to more than 200 residents. On being incorporated, the city chose to adopt a council-mayor system of government, with Clinton Viven becoming the first mayor of the newly established community. The City Council Sunset Valley government consists of one Mayor and five Council members.

Over the next five decades after its inception, Sunset Valley continued to develop its city services and infrastructure. Although largely agricultural in its early years, the city has progressed into commercial development in the past decade. Along with paved roads and gas pipelines laid out in the 1960s, a city hall was established in 1977 and an official police department was established two years later. In the year 2001, Sunset Valley became an official mail delivery destination for the U.S. Postal Service.

Geographically, the city of Sunset Valley is located at a distance of just 5 miles, or 8 kilometers, to the southwest of downtown Austin. It is situated off State Highway 71 in southwestern Travis County. Sunset Valley has an all-land area totaling about 1.4 square miles.

Like most newcomers, before moving to Sunset Valley you might be interested in knowing the story behind its name. The city of Sunset Valley owes its name to its unique location and its geographical significance in the region. At the time of its incorporation and official naming, the region was best known as a picturesque natural valley located on the western end of Austin - an area that was closest to the sunset. Hence, the name Sunset Valley became an obvious choice for the town.

Some of the earliest residents of Sunset Valley proudly recall being asked by people if they lived in “that valley with all the beautiful trees.” The city was and continues to be known as a landmark of natural beauty in the Austin region. For those moving to Austin for work or other professional concerns, yet looking for an idyllic quiet residence, Sunset Valley might just be the perfect place to settle down.

Bunched between the summer and winter are the much more pleasant fall and spring seasons that are a delight to the residents and make for the perfect conditions for a trek along the city’s natural landscape. Sunset Valley also experiences annual rainfall that is evenly distributed throughout the year, although it is most common for showers to take place during these two seasons.
