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. View both the architectural styles of the town, and the interactive history map of individual houses.
