Onomastics

The name was recorded in about 1150 as Sahebroch and in 1386 as Saubro; it possibly derives from Old Danish *saghi, "somewhat cut", referring to tree-felling, and brōk, "swamp".

History

Sabro was originally one of the smaller villages in the area, with a few houses and farms south and west of Sabro Church.

After the road between Aarhus and Viborg (today Primærrute 26) was built through the area around 1890, a small settlement developed at the crossroads about 1 kilometre (0.62 mi) from the original village. In the mid-20th century the sogn (parish) councils of Borum-Lyngby, Lading and Sabro-Fårup (of which Sabro was part until 1 April 1970) decided to make this the location of a central school, Sabro Korsvejskolen (Sabro Crossroads School), which was dedicated in 1964.

In the 1970s and 1980s the crossroads settlement and the original village merged, as part of a strong urban growth which has since continued eastwards, covering former agricultural land in the direction of the neighbouring village of Mundelstrup.
