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.
