About Garland

Garland is a city in northern Texas in the United States. It was established in 1887, when two rival railroad villages, Duck Creek and Embree, were combined by an act of the U.S. Congress and given the name Augustus H. Garland in honour of the attorney general. It is located next to Dallas (west). A tornado in May 1927 killed 17 people and left much of the city in ruins.

Industrialization and the agriculture crops grown on the nearby Blacklands Belt help to support Garland’s economy. In addition to a wide range of other products, the city also produces a well-known brand of cowboy hats, chemicals, and electrical equipment. Inc. 1891. Pop. 226,876 (2010); 246,018 (2020).

Texas, one of the 50 states that make up the USA. In 1845, it was admitted to the union as the 28th state. With the exception of Alaska, Texas is the largest state by area and is located in the south-central region of the US. From north to south, the state stretches for almost 1,000 miles (1,600 km), and from east to west, it covers around the same distance.


Many of its borders are defined by water. The eastern two-thirds of Texas’ northern boundary with Oklahoma are formed by the twisting Red River, while the remaining northern third is formed by the Panhandle, which juts northward and corresponds to Oklahoma’s western Panhandle. The Sabine River makes up the majority of Louisiana’s eastern border, which is also shared by Arkansas on land. To the southeast is the crescent-shaped Gulf of Mexico coastline, and to the southwest, the Rio Grande sculpts a narrow strait dividing Texas from Mexico. West of the region is the state of New Mexico. The state’s capital is located in Austin in the state’s south-central region.


Texas’ size and diversity are visible in almost all facets of its geography, economics, history, and cultural life. For more than a century, Texas was a part of the Spanish Empire. From 1821 to 1836, when it attained independence, it was a member of the young nation of Mexico. It then enjoyed a brief republican history before joining the Union. When Texas gave up its independence to become a state, it was seen as a wild, uncontrolled frontier. Despite the fact that many Texans still strongly identify with their cowboy heritage, the state’s perception of Texas has significantly changed over the course of the 20th century. Today, Texas is renowned for its enormous agricultural wealth, significant oil and natural gas production, industry and finance, enormous urban centres that support a cosmopolitan cultural life, and seemingly endless stretches of high prairie and ranges devoted to cattle and cotton.



The term thecas, which means “allies” or “friends” in the Caddo language, is the source of the state’s name. (The Spanish adopted the spelling tejas or texas to designate the region in which this Native American tribe resided.) Texas is frequently split into East and West regions, while the exact border between the two is unclear. However, in general, East Texas is recognised for its rainy climate, cotton production, and ties to the Old South, whereas West Texas is known for its dry climate, cattle ranching, and connections to the West. 268,597 square miles in size (695,662 square km). (2020) Population: 29,145,505.

Texas is made up of several sizable geographic areas, from the southeast’s rich and heavily populated Coastal Plains to the west and northwest’s high plains and mountains. The Coastal Plains, which extend inland from the Gulf Coast and make up nearly two-fifths of the state’s total area, have an elevation range of sea level to about 1,000 feet (300 metres). These low, flat plains move more into the interior, forming a fertile crescent that is perfect for farming and raising livestock. Except for areas that have been artificially drained, much of the land close to the coast is marshy, if not a swamp.



At the Balcones Escarpment, where tremors have been felt, the Coastal Plains come to an end. The terrain continues into the Texas Hill Country, the Edwards Plateau, and the North Central Plains to the south and north, respectively, to the northwest of this fault. The region’s elevation ranges from 200 to 750 metres (750 feet) above sea level, and farming and cattle raising make up the region’s primary industries. There are modest businesses and leisure sites in the Hill Country.

The Amarillo-based North Plains subdivision relies on ranching, oil, small businesses, and grain farming. Large underground water reservoirs in the South Plains subdivision, which is centred on Lubbock, allow for extensive irrigated cotton farming.


The Caprock Escarpment, a rock protrusion that runs 200 miles to the north and south, is located near the western edge of the North Central Plains (320 km). The High Plains land, Texas’ third-largest region, is located beyond that escarpment, and the Trans-Pecos region is to the south.


Many of the myths about Texas weather and the Texas cowboy originated in the West Texas High Plains region. Sandstorms frequently occur on these areas. Although many of the region’s broad, flat riverbeds are dry for the majority of the year, they can serve as sluiceways for flash floods. The Llano Estacado, or “Staked Plain,” is a flat, arid landscape in this region. According to folklore, a Spanish expedition led by Francisco Vázquez de Coronado traversed the area in the middle of the 16th century and planted stakes as markers for the return journey. Even the indigenous people were hesitant to travel through these places.

West of the Pecos River is where the state’s most rocky terrain can be found. The Guadalupe Mountains, which descend from the Rocky Mountains, lead into the region known as Big Bend because of a bend in the Rio Grande. Guadalupe Point, which rises to a height of 8,749 feet (2,667 metres) above sea level, is the highest peak in Texas. Big Bend National Park helps to maintain a significant amount of the area’s natural harshness.

The Rio Grande is Texas’s most significant river. Its Texas portion serves as the border between the United States and Mexico and stretches 1,900 miles (3,060 km) from its source in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado to the Gulf of Mexico. The Brazos, which at 1,280 miles [2,060 km] is the longest river entirely in Texas, as well as the Sabine, Trinity, and Red rivers, the latter of which makes up a significant amount of the boundary between Texas and Oklahoma, are other significant rivers that cross the state.


Texas has around 200 significant lakes and reservoirs in the early 21st century, up from only 8 in 1913. Many of these were built to conserve water in anticipation of recurring droughts. Others, like the 137-kilometer-long (85-mile) Highland Lakes chain in the Hill Country, are well-liked for pleasure.
