Downtown Garland, Texas was recently added to the National Register of Historic Places.  To celebrate this great honor, the city held a “Rockin the Square” party complete with music, fireworks and fun.  This adventurous city is rich in history, urban appeal, natural resources and pure Texas charisma.  What better way to represent it than with a free walking tour app for all visitors and residents to enjoy!




Currently, there are 3 walking tours in the Experience Historic Garland App: Historical Main Street, Henry’s Heritage Hike, Historical Downtown


Each of these tours contains black and white photos from years past of the same streets and corners, along with the history that happened there.  Users can learn how the second east-west transcontinental highway, now known as US Highway 67 was routed through Garland.  The app also includes a story about how  a Thanksgiving Day fire razed the downtown square, which caused the town to rebuild.  Garland’s location along railroads also formed the town, commerce and its people.


The city of Garland not only wanted to showcase all the historic places and events in their history, but also make it user friendly and lively.  The Tour Buddy platform provided the technology for a GPS triggered self-guided tour.  You can download Experience Historic Garland on the App Store and Google Play.
