The Garrett Park Historic District is a 154 acre residential community incorporated in 1898 along the B&O Railroad.

You are invited to view the Video Walking Tour of  Garrett Park:  Paths to the Present, Montgomery Connections History Project.  (By Montgomery County Cable, run time is 15.02 minutes) 

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 the 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 the architectural styles of the town. There are detailed backgrounds on some  properties on Kenilworth, Waverly, Montrose, and Strathmore Avenue.
