The village of Garland, in what is now the Municipality of Ethelbert, was established in 1899 when the Burrows Lumber Company opened a mill here. One of the early residents was Andrew Kowalewich, who opened a general store in 1913. Renting it out in 1916 to pursue other business endeavours, he re-entered the retail business in 1934 with his sons, to operate Kowalewich Brothers General Store. The store, a municipally-designated historic site (1997), closed in 1979. The building has been demolished.
