Sun Valley History
Senator Charles Maclay acquired the land that now makes up Sun Valley in 1874. Two years later, the Southern Pacific Railroad was constructed in the area that was known by the name Roberts and the town became home to seven families. In 1896, the town’s name was changed to Roscoe after a railroad employee that was killed nearby. As time went on the small community continued to grow and the first gas station established itself in 1915. The name of the town was not changed to Sun Valley until 1948 at the request of the residents.
