If it weren’t for Garland lawyers, Garland might not exist today. In 1850, the towns of Embree and Duck Creek were vying for control of the local post office. A local judge settled the dispute by placing the post office in between the two towns. A community sprang up around the post office, which became known as Garland, after local Texas attorney and then United States Attorney General Augustus Garland.
