Originally founded as a cattle rustling and outlaw community in the 1850s, the town of Garrison later became the center of mining interests. The name comes from the Garrison family who farmed in the area. After mining interests subsided, the Garrisons had a livestock and hay ranch. Mrs. Garrison was a schoolteacher who also handled the mail, and the town's name honors her.[3]

Climate

Garrison experiences a semi-arid climate with hot summers and cold winter. Due to Garrison's elevation and aridity, the Diurnal temperature variation is substantial.
