Overview


Established in 1872, Garrett, Maryland’s westernmost county, was the last county created in the state and is named for John Work Garrett, then president of the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad. The images presented here were selected with care from the author’s collection of several thousand postcards. Featured are Garrett’s numerous towns and communities; downtown business scenes; residential views; historic buildings, churches, railroad stations; and the great resort hotels. Also included are the county’s many historic and natural landmarks, rustic scenes, the Deep Creek Lake area, and varied sites along the historic National Road. A special element is the inclusion of many of the personal messages sent on the back of the postcards.
