Historical Markers

Listed here are historical markers sponsored by the Garland Landmark Society, as well as official state markers, which are placed under the auspices of the Texas Historical Commission, headquartered in Austin. The inscription on each marker is included.

Where available, background narratives from the state marker applications are linked as they were submitted by the applicants and examined by the Dallas County Historical Commission. These narratives vary in length, style and detail, but each adds perspective to the summary inscriptions appearing on the markers themselves.

While it may be assumed that each applicant-preparer made every effort to verify the available facts, and that those were later reviewed at the county level, the Landmark Society can make no warranty as to the accuracy of the narratives.
