Heritage Crossing is four quadrants of land at the intersection of Sixth and Walnut Streets in Downtown Garland. Currently, one quadrant is fully developed, consisting of the Landmark Museum located in Garland's 1901 Santa Fe Depot, a refurbished 1910 Pullman Coach Car and the 19th Century Tinsley-Lyles House.
The remaining three quadrants are in development stages and will contain walking paths with markers describing Garland’s history. Heritage Crossing is a significant representation of the importance of history and heritage to the City of Garland.
