About Garland and its Consumers
Garland is a Texas city in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metropolitan area. The city is situated about 15 miles northeast of Dallas and is one of the state's most populous cities. Major highways traversing the city include Interstates I-30 and I-635; and Texas State Highways 66 and 78. Located nearby are U.S. Routes 75 and 80. The genesis of Garland can be traced to early rural communities and townships, the first of which was Duck Creek. Established during the mid-to-latter stages of the 19th century, Duck Creek became an agricultural community whose principal crop was cotton. The arrival of the Santa Fe Railroad in 1886, which bypassed old Duck Creek by almost a mile, gave rise to a competing community known as Embree. Later that same year, the Missouri, Kansas & Texas Railroad (MK&T) built its own station a little north of Embree and called it the new Duck Creek. The competition between the communities was resolved in 1887 when the government located a new post office between the two towns and named the new location Garland in honor of then U.S. Attorney General Augustus H. Garland.
