The second Garland (AM-238) was launched 20 February 1944 by Winslow Marine Railway & Shipbuilding Co., Winslow, Wash.; sponsored by Miss Karen Lundberg and commissioned 26 August 1944, Lt. Carl Carmichael in command.

After shakedown out of Puget Sound Garland departed San Pedro Calif., 12 November with a convoy to Rossol Roads, Palau Islands, where she arrived 2 January 1945. The minesweeper acted as entrance control ship at Rossol Roads; escorted convoys between Peleliu and Ulithi until 20 May, then patrolled convoy routes between Ulithi and Eniwetok. She departed Ulithi 28 June escorting a 16 ship convoy bound for Buckner Bay, Okinawa, arriving 17 July.

Based at Buckner Bay, Garland swept mines in the East China Sea (22-31 July 1945) and (13-25 August 1945). Shifting to Ominato Ro, Honshu, she swept Japanese mineflelds to clear the path for Allied transports carrying occupation troops to the Empire. Garland departed Ominato Ro 20 October to serve as flagship of Mine Division 40 at Sasebo until 20 November when she sailed for the United States, arriving San Diego 19 December. Departing San Diego 31 January 1946, she transited the Panama Canal and steamed to Orange, Tex.; decommissioned there 2 August 1946; and joined the Altantic Reserve Fleet. Reclassified MSE-238 7 February 1955, Garland remained in the Reserve Fleet until struck from the Navy List 1 April 1960. She was sold to Ships and Power, Inc. 24 October 1960.

Garland received two battle stars for World War II service.

10 of Chevrolet’s Greatest Racing Engines Throughout History

Chevy engines from history | Source: GM

One of the great things about being an American citizen is freedom of choice. In the case of automotive fanatics like ourselves, this means having the freedom to order a full-blown 454-cubic-inch LSX454R crate motor online or at your local dealership. Powerful, customizable, and easy to drop into just about any rear-wheel drive car, the Chevy V8 is able to deliver just about all the power you’ll ever need.

Driving cars like the insane Cadillac CTS-V with its supercharged 640 horsepower Corvette motor show how easily a Chevy V8 can transform just about anything into a borderline track car. By firing up that bowtie-engineered V8, you’re celebrating Chevy’s lengthy and well-documented history of building race engines. Plus, the neighbors probably need to learn how to appreciate the aroma of race fuel anyways.

With a racing history that spans more than a century, Chevy’s racing engines division has continuously evolved, and today, it resides under a single roof at the all-new Powertrain Performance and Racing Center up in Pontiac, Mich. Thanks to the guys over at GM, who have graciously opened their photo vaults to us, here are the greatest Chevy racing engines of all time, from the Brickyard at Indy to NASCAR to your local drag strip.

Pressures of prosperity

As Garland grew to become one of the nation's 100 largest cities, however, powerful neighbors closed in on the Travis College Hill District. It's north and south borders were defined by heavy traffic when State Highway 78 outgrew Main Street and was rerouted.

To the west, Garland High School opened in 1936. As the campus grew and its property became cramped, a cut-through street brought off-campus delinquency and traffic issues to 11th Street.

But a greater threat to the neighborhood was the success of Garland's most established churches. They expanded to the doorstep of Travis College Hill in the mid-1990s. One of them replaced four of the Craftsman homes with a parking lot. Another wanted to do the same. But neighbors banded together and fought off the attempt, preserving the historic neighborhood.

3 / 3 Two of Garland's oldest houses were on flatbeds downtown while their futures were decided. The Pace House was moved to the Travis College Hill District and the Lyles House (right) to the city's new Heritage Park. ((File Photo / Nathan Hunsinger))

Oddly, the oldest house in the district was the actually the last to arrive. At mid-block stands the Pace House, a Queen Anne-style farmhouse with the neighborhood's historical marker and a "circa 1895" sign from its days as a city-owned hall for weddings and other events.

In 2014, the Moores purchased the Pace House to save it from demolition. They moved it from downtown Garland to a lot created from the former back entryway to Garland High.

But that's not all the evolving history in Travis College Hill. The district's first newborn resident in more than a quarter of a century lives on a site R.O. Travis once picked out for his own young family more than a century ago.

Wes and Dawn Peacock had their second child after they moved into the neighborhood in August 2014. The home required required electrical, plumbing and foundation work, and while it's not yet ready for the home tour, the Peacocks still appreciate its link to the past.

"There's a special feeling about Craftsman homes from this era," Dawn Peacock said. "My great-grandmother had a house like this. It was the home I remember from as far back as I remember."

1 / 5 Wes Peacock, his wife, Dawn, and their children, Miles, 5, and Josephine, 14 months, live in a Craftsman home built on the lots reserved for the original developer, R.O. Travis. The street of Craftsman style houses in Garland was added to the National Register of Historic Places. ((Rex C. Curry / Special Contributor))

2 / 5 Cindy Bird and her husband, Jim, have lived in their 1913 Craftsman home for 12 years. Relying on Jim's skills from decades in construction and their historical research, they have made period-appropriate renovations to one of the three remaining homes built in 1913, the year Travis College Hill was platted. ((Rex C. Curry / Special Contributor))

3 / 5 Becky Baxter and her husband, Greg, have lived in their 1918 Craftsman home for 16 years. Becky's scaffold is on the back side of the home now, as she continues to remove paint and repaint the house slat by slat. ((Rex C. Curry / Special Contributor))

4 / 5 Dale Adams and his wife have lived in this 1915 Craftsman home for 10 years. Their two-block street of Craftsman-style houses in Garland has been added to the National Register of Historic Places. ((Rex C. Curry / Special Contributor))

5 / 5 Chris Warden shows off his 1927 Craftsman home on South 11th Street in Garland. Two blocks of the street backing up to Garland High School have been added to the National Register of Historic Places. ((Rex C. Curry / Special Contributor))

Post War Growth

After World War II growth continued steadily. There were notable country house sales, some of these truly lavish affairs. Particularly of note was the auction at Eslington Park, Whittingham, Northumberland in 1951, which followed the death of the 7th Baron Ravensworth.

Then in the early 1970's came a sudden explosion of public interest in antiques. Collectors from all over the UK were attracted to the work of North Country artists and craftsmen. An increasing number of international treasures began to pass through the firm's salerooms, adding to those from the region that had accumulated here thanks to its wealthy industry and shipping in the 19th Century. Major house sales during the 1980's included Cardew Lodge at Dalton, Cumbria, Bradley Hall at Wylam and Slaley Hall, Northumberland. In the 1990's important sales were held at Acomb House and Elsdon Tower in Northumberland. More recent large country house contents sales include the contents of The Hermitage, Hexham, in June 2013 and, most recently in 2020, the principal contents of Whitchester Hall, Haltwhistle and Allensford Hall, Consett.

Due to increasing pressure on space, in 1988 Anderson & Garland moved for only the second time in it’s history to new 20,000 sq.ft. premises at Marlborough House, Newcastle. Here the firm was immediately able to take advantage of its vastly increased display and selling opportunities. The first day of the Inaugural Sale realised record figures for certain items and, up until recently, a record for a single days selling for the firm.

In 1832, Hot Springs National Park became the first national reservation set aside for recreational purposes and is the only national park within a city. There are 47 springs along the base of the Hot Springs Mountain. Recreation and tourism have always been mainstays of the county's economy, along with livestock production and logging.

One of the largest quartz crystal mining operations in North America is located in Garland County. Also, the famous Oaklawn Park offers thoroughbred horse racing from February through April. Three lakes, Lake Ouachita, Lake Catherine and Lake Hamilton all offer a full range of water sports and recreation facilities. As of July 1, 2017, Garland County had a population of 98,658 residents.
