Construction on new wayfinding kiosks in Downtown Garland will begin Monday, April 8, and bring with it lane closures and/or parking blockages in three locations:
• Downtown Square (State Street at Sixth Street)
• Granville Arts Center (Fifth Street at Austin Street)
• City Hall (Fifth Street at State Street)

These installation areas will be impacted for up to two weeks once construction begins. After these kiosks are installed, construction on two other locations will begin at the Central Library (Austin Street at Sixth Street) and on Main Street (Main Street at Glenbrook Drive).
The new kiosks are the next phase of the City’s wayfinding program to help direct travelers to historic Downtown. The kiosks will feature maps and a series of messages highlighting the area’s many features.
The wayfinding program is intended to create a user-friendly, visible navigational system to guide visitors and residents to key Garland destinations, while marketing the City’s historical, cultural and entertainment venues and assets. The wayfinding program also includes directional signage along major thoroughfares to assist motorists.
For more information, contact Angela Self at [email protected].

Becoming Garland Avenue musical drama

G.W. Crossman's ledger of insurance policies written during Garland's early days shows a $1,000 policy written to Mrs. Sallie Beaver for her new dwelling and barn at 313 South 11th Street (then Garland Avenue). Crossman, who had an insurance agency on downtown's east side, in January 1914 sold the widowed Mrs. Beaver a policy for $1,000 coverage on her dwelling that had been built in 1913. It lists her premium as $65.40. Mrs. Beaver is a character in the "Becoming Garland Avenue" musical drama and will be portrayed by Dorothy Power White. G.W. Crossman's wife, Ella Sparks Crossman, is also a character in the drama and is being played by their descendant Kay Turner. The musical will be at 2 p.m. Saturday, April 13, in the Plaza Theatre Downtown Garland. As of yesterday, the performance was completely sold out. For inquiries call 972-205-2790

Rocket part? 🚀Space junk? 🛰UFO? Hmmmm. 🤔 What could it be? Our water utilities crews recently made this interesting find while working near a creek on Garland Ave. The metal object is about 15 ft long and 10 feet wide. Any ideas what this strange rusty find could be?

Becoming Garland Avenue musical drama

Three advertisements from the 1918 Garland High School yearbook feature early Garlandites that will be portrayed or referenced in the upcoming musical drama, "Becoming Garland Avenue". Grocer A.J. Beaver advertises his wares, George A. Alexander advertises his insurance services, and Dr. J.H. Ogle promotes himself as a physician and surgeon. All these ads appear in the 1918 "Lone Star", a forerunner to GHS' annual, now named "The Owl's Nest". The entire annual can be found on the website, www.garland1965.com. The musical drama will be presented on Saturday, April 13 at 2 p.m. at the Plaza Theatre Downtown Garland. Tickets are available from www.garlandartboxoffice.com, by calling 972-205-2790, or by visiting the Granville Arts Center box office in person.

Photo of the day, from GarlandHistorical.org. Caption reads, "Garland Clinic and Hospital was a private facility opened in 1954 by Dr. Robert E. Speegle on Marion Dr. at Resistol. With an emergency room, delivery room, X-ray facility, surgery, laboratory and 11 beds, it attracted specialists and provided Garland’s first alternative to Dallas hospitals. The campus now houses the Las Brisas Residence Club."

Photo of the day! The caption from GarlandHistorical.org reads, "The Continental Motors baseball team, shown here during WWII, consisted of plant employees who played after hours against other adult teams of the area. Operating in the early core of the present Kraft Foods complex, Continental produced both tank and aircraft engines from 1943 until the end of the war."
