SUNRISE BEACH VILLAGE, TEXAS. Sunrise Beach Village, one of the first lakefront subdivisions on Lake Lyndon B. Johnson, is between Marble Falls and Llano in Llano County. It was founded in 1958 by developer David Miller of San Antonio as a resort and retirement center and given the name Sunrise Beach. In 1966 the community had recreational facilities, motels, restaurants, and businesses concerned with building trades. By 1970 the estimated population had risen to 800. After peaking at 1,025 in the mid-1970s, the population fell to 420 by 1980. The community was incorporated shortly thereafter, and the name was later changed to Sunrise Beach Village. In 1990 the population was 497. The population reached 704 in 2000.
