Garden Valley is a crossroads community about 9 miles west of Lindale.[citation needed]

Historically, prior to the formation of nearby town of Van (6 miles west of Garden Valley) in the late 1920s when oil was discovered there, Garden Valley was a town with a post office, stage coach station and a hotel.[citation needed] Today there is only one stop sign in the community's center with no businesses or public buildings.[citation needed]

Garden Valley is headquarters of several prominent Christian ministries Teen Mania,[1] Mercy Ships,[2] and the Youth With A Mission campus, YWAM Tyler.[3]
