Garland’s historical roots were developed by a rivalry between two early settlements, Embree and Duck Creek. As each of the settlements grew, a dispute arose as to which town should have the local post office. To resolve the dispute, the post office placed between the two towns. The new location was named after U.S. Attorney General Augustus Hill Garland. Soon after, the towns of Embree and Duck Creek were combined to form the City of Garland, which was later incorporated in 1891.
