The Garrett Park Historic District is a 154 acre residential community incorporated in 1898 along the B&O Railroad.The Town of Garrett Park was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1975 because it has been able to maintain its 19th Century village plan while accommodating over 100 years of growth. Garrett Park embodies an American living pattern that revolutionized our use of land. The railroad caused profound cultural changes, enabling urban workers to commute, while living in what they perceived as a rural environment.
The Historic Preservation Committee was established by Ordinance: Section 400, Code of Ordinances
Five members are appointed by the Mayor, and serve 3 year terms.
