Garland is a large city just northeast of Dallas and is part of the Dallas-Forth Worth metropolitan area. In the late 1800s, two small towns were arguing about where to place the post office that would serve both. Garland, named after U.S. Attorney General Augustus Hill Garland, was created between the two in 1887 to house the post office and end the dispute. Shortly after, Garland absorbed the two smaller towns and was incorporated in 1891.
