Biographical/Historical Note

Garland County was established April 5, 1873, and was formed out of Hot Spring, Montgomery, and Saline Counties. The county was named for August H. Garland, governor of Arkansas in 1874, United States Senator 1876-1885, and United States Attorney General under President Grover Cleveland in 1885. Hot Springs was established as the county seat when the county was formed. Many of the early records of Garland County do not exist, because they were destroyed by fire when the courthouse burned in 1888 and 1905. The courthouse was severely damaged again in 1913, but the building was not destroyed entirely.
