GARLAND'S ROACH FEED & SEED, PREPARING FOR ITS 86TH ANNIVERSARY THIS WEEKEND, HAS VAST TIES TO 11TH STREET AND PACE HOUSE

As Garland's venerable institution, Roach Feed & Seed, prepares for its 86th anniversary this weekend, we look at the connections between this historic downtown business and Garland's 11th Street.

The Roach family and the Pace family were closely tied, in that the mother of Haskell Roach, longtime owner and proprietor of the business, and the original owner of Garland's Historic Pace House, now situated at 317 South 11th Street, were siblings.

Haskell's mother, Rosa Belle Pace Roach, and John Henry Pace were brother and sister. Their father was George Washington Pace, married to Harriet Ellen Routh. John Pace inherited from his mother (and before that, his grandfather, George Washington Routh) the land on which the house originally sat. He built the home, typical of the style of its day (Queen Anne-inspired Victorian) on the Texas frontier, as the main farmhouse for the surrounding cotton farm at present-day State Street and 1st.

After Pace and his wife, Nina, died, the house (built at the turn of the last century) was sold to Jack McDaniel by Pace’s only child, daughter Lillian Pace Raney of Dallas. McDaniel, whose father Earl McDaniel had been a business partner with Haskell Roach, then gave it to the city in 1985 for the city’s participation in the Texas Bicentennial celebration. Students from building trades classes at area high schools worked for eight months to restore it for the June 1, 1986, dedication to the city. For decades it was used as an event venue for the city. In 2014 it was moved to its present location on Garland's 11th Street, where it returned to residential use.

Earl McDaniel and Haskell Roach were partners in Garland’s Roach & McDaniel Grain Company, a forerunner to Roach Feed & Seed. Haskell's father, W.H. Roach, was original to the business, which opened on June 16, 1933.

A party on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Roach Feed & Seed on Main Street in downtown Garland will celebrate the business' history.

Photo of the day from GarlandHistorical.org! Workers from the Civilian Conservation Corps camp in Mesquite are pictured in 1938 constructing drainage on 94 acres of terraced agricultural land owned by Garland businessman J. Fletcher White. During their six years in the New Deal’s Depression battle, camp workers completed projects on an estimated 40,000 acres in Dallas, Rockwall and Kaufman counties. (2014-02)

Photo of the day from GarlandHistorical.org. Onions were grown extensively in this region during the '30s and '40s and consolidated in sheds awaiting shipment. Shown at left with a buyer about 1949 is G.L. Coon, a major local onion agent and grower. Around the sheds, located between 5th Street and the Santa Fe tracks at Avenue D, are seasonal workers, including migrants and local students. The one with strings through his belt loop is sewing the tops of the onion sacks to close them.

"In just seven years, the United States will commemorate the 250th anniversary of the American Revolution. What will that commemoration look like? And what will it mean for the history community?

Over the past several months, AASLH has worked with its 250th Anniversary Task Force to gather the latest information from around the country about the status of planning for the “semiquincentennial.” After surveying the leaders of history organizations in every U.S. state and territory, we are pleased to release our 2019 Annual Report on the 250th Anniversary."

50 years ago this July, the ears and eyes of Americans and citizens throughout the world were tuned to their radio and television sets as they occupied ringside seats in one of man’s greatest adventures: the Apollo 11 moonlanding. As the three-man crew of American Astronauts approached the moon and prepared for the first lunar walk by Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, thousands of people in the Garland area had a particular keen interest in the spectacle. They were the scientists, engineers, production workers and other employees of the many of Garland-area industries who contributed. Visit the Garland Landmark Museum any Saturday to learn about products and systems supplied by government contracting firms in Garland to support the Apollo 11 project and beyond to Garland’s involvement in the space industry today. #MakeYourMarkGarland #GarlandHeritage

A bevy of cousins with ties to Garland's 11th Street. In these two photos relatives of the A.J. and Lorena Poore family visit at their great-grandparents house around 1952 in Weatherford. The Poores lived at 309 South 11th Street in the late 1930s and early 1940s. The kiddos are the great-grandchildren of James Robert and Vora Alice Poore, who were the parents of Bryant Poore and grandparents of A.J. Poore of Garland. In the first photo their grandfather Bryant Poore is in the back right. Cousin Nita Poore is on the front row. Others are Larry, Jim, Anneil, Gena, and Roger Poore. (The latter four siblings are children of A.J. and Lorena.) In the first photo are cousins Larry, Jim, Anneil, Gena, Roger, Nita, and Judy Poore. (Photos from Poore family)

It's #ThrowbackThursday! This photo shows City Meat Market, which stood on present Main St. at the east end of the square’s south side. Likely pictured ca. 1906, when H. B. Shugart would have been the proprietor. Both the meat market and its frame-structured neighbor, H. B. Hicks’s Harness and Saddle, would have numbered among casualties of a fire in 1911.
