GARRETT, TEXAS (Panola County). Garrett, also known as Garrett Springs, is on Farm Road 999 some fourteen miles southwest of Carthage in southwestern Panola County. The community formed after the Civil War. During the 1890s a school began operating there, and in 1897 it had an enrollment of ninety-seven. The community had the school and a number of houses in the mid-1930s. After World War II the school was consolidated with those of Carthage, but in the mid-1960s a church and a few scattered dwellings still remained in the area. In the early 1990s Garrett was a dispersed rural community.
