The Garland Campfire Tales is free and open to the public. The event will be on the greenspace next to the Landmark Museum (behind the green train car). We encourage you to bring blankets or folding chairs. You are welcome to bring food and drink. We will start with the stories from 6-7 p.m. and then have s’mores around the campfire from 7-8 p.m.
We look forward to seeing you, and ask that you please spread the word about this great event to your friends and family.
The third edition of the Garland Cemetery Walking Tour will be at the Garland Mills Cemetery (at Centerville Rd. & Commerce St.). This is a self guided tour. Guidebooks may be picked up at the Garland Landmark Museums on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Guidebooks lead you through significant headstones telling stories of people and headstone symbolism.
