Sunray is a largely agricultural community that also counts oil and gas as some of its primary industries. The city was founded by Jack C. Collins, who started to lay out the city lots in the 1930s. Back then, Sunray was known as Altman, but since another town in Rusk County already bears the name, Collins renamed the community to Sunray, with the name finally approved in 1935. According to historical sources, Collins settled with the name “Sunray” due to the presence of a gas-oil refinery by Sunray Oil Company, located on 10 acres of land donated by Collins himself to another oil and gas company.
Officially incorporated in 1937 and then 1945, Sunray is home to a tight-knit and welcoming locale. The whole city is served by the Sunray Independent School District (SISD).
