Home > Things to Do > Downtown Garland Scavenger Hunt

Visit the museum during open hours to get your scavenger hunt clues, lanyard and starting pin.

Head to the business you think is the correct answer and see if you are right. If so, they will give you another souvenir pin. Once you have all 10 pins, return to the museum for your goodie bag full of prizes. This is a great way to learn about historic Downtown Garland while visiting businesses at the same time!

Open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays

393 N. Sixth St., Downtown Garland

Visit the business described in its corresponding clue and pick up a souvenir pin. Each stop on the hunt has its own unique pin.
Need a hint? Participating businesses will be able to help.
Solve all the clues and bring back all pins to the museum to get your goody bag.

1. In 1911, the Garland Band leased my second floor for practices and performances. Don’t let my current name mislead you—I have sofas, not bread and cakes.
2. I was the first office of the Garland News on the square. Now I am red and black, just like the old newspaper joke.
3. I was a lumber yard and a discount auto parts, and for the past 9 years I’ve been the corner café. A red arrow points the way.
4. In my 1950 remodel, Denny Graves painted a mural of ballet dancers in a Cinderella motif on my wall. I also received an added cry room for noisy children.
5. I was once the Garland Pharmacy, but now I’m more frocks and jewels.
6. As a C.M. Brown owned movie theatre on Main St., I had a pipe organ and a cooling system. Now, if you like it hot and spicy you might like me.
7. I was renovated in 2010 to look more like my old self. In the early 1900’s I was Handley’s Drug Store, but now you don’t need a prescription to get your morning fix.
8. I was a quilt shop for over 20 years, but now I like to “get down!”
9. I have been a Ford Store and a Dodge-Plymouth dealership but now I’m a bit Wild with a side of Grace.
10. We are the longest continually operating business in downtown, and we aren’t just for farmers.
If a business is not open during your scavenger hunting, please let us know when you return to the museum.
We will provide you with the pin you missed if your answer is correct!
