Landmark Museum at Heritage Crossing

If you want to learn more about the history of Garland then you need to head down to Heritage Crossing where you will find a Santa Fe depot from 1901. Inside is the Landmark Museum, which has one of the largest collections of artifacts and period memorabilia related to Garland. On a visit here you can expect to find diverse items such as vintage newspapers, farm tools that would have been used in years gone by, as well as antique textiles such as quilts. Many of the items date from the 1800s, and offer a fascinating view of how Garland would have been in the days of old. Dedicated in 1974 and housed in the vintage 1901 Santa Fe depot, this museum exhibits Garland artifacts, such as old newspapers, farm tools and quilts. The collection represents decades of diligent solicitation effort, focusing on the period between 1850 and the present.

The Garland Landmark Society, Inc Established in 1972, the Landmark Society collects, preserves, exhibits and interprets historical elements of our community’s unique heritage. That mouthful of mission supports an educational effort to enlighten and entertain the public, so it’s natural that our volunteers operate in discovery mode. Garland is a special place to live and work, and it’s important to understand what made it that way. Landmark’s program of work emanates from the Landmark Museum, now situated at 393 N. Sixth Street. Dedicated in 1974, the museum is housed in the vintage 1901 Santa Fe depot, owned and maintained by the City of Garland. Inside it are Garland-specific historical artifacts and documents, all donated to and maintained by the Society. This collection, representing decades of diligent solicitation effort, focuses on the period between 1850 and the present

Here volunteers plan and work on projects, including displays, as well as the fundraising required to carry them out. Unless adjusted to dodge holidays, board meetings and work sessions are held here at 7 PM on the first Monday evening of each month. Since regular museum opening hours are restricted by the availability of volunteers, they also make occasional off-site presentations. Members receive On Track, our quarterly newsletter containing features and updates of historical interest. They also receive our annual historical fundraising calendar, which highlights vintage photos and significant dates from the city’s past. And since 2006, this website has provided 24-7 online access to a expanding menu of local history postings. Responses confirm that Landmark’s growing site has become a regular reference archive for individuals and commercial interests alike. Stay tuned. The Garland Landmark Society has always operated without either employees or an annual operating budget from the city. Nothing happens without members, volunteers and other donors of time and treasure. These supporters share an appreciation and pride in Garland’s past; they’re good people to know.
