Garland City, Utah
Garland was originally named “Sunset” and settled in 1890. The first settler was David E. Manning.
It was a company town and was renamed after William Garland, the contractor who built the Utah Sugar Company factory at the location, completed in 1903. The company donated land to the LDS Church for a “ward chapel and amusement hall” and also built 14 homes, a hotel, and other buildings. The town had a general store, a bank, a post office, and a newspaper named The Garland Globe in 1906. By the 1920s there were other merchants, a flour mill, a Carnegie library, and a high school.
Garland was officially called Garland in 1904. Today the population is around 2728 people. While we are small in number we are big on community, and Garland is a great place to live.
Garland is a beautiful place to live. Not only do we have beautiful historic homes but new modern homes as well.
We are a small city, so you won’t find Walmart here, but you will find places to shop just a few blocks down in Tremonton.
With famous eateries like the Pie Dump, and delicious places like Golden Spike, pull up a chair and enjoy some small town cooking.
