County Information
Garrett County is the westernmost county of the U.S. state of Maryland and is part of the Pittsburgh DMA. As of 2000, the population was 29,846. It was named for John Work Garrett (1820-1884), president of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad from 1858 until his death in 1884. Its county seat is Oakland.
Garrett County lies in the Allegheny Mountains, which forms the western portion of the Appalachian Mountains. The western part of the county, drained by the Youghiogheny River, is the only part of Maryland within the Mississippi River watershed.

History
The western part of Maryland (including the present Garrett County) was incorporated into Prince George's County in 1696. This county included six current counties, and by repeated splitting, new ones were generated: Frederick from Prince George's in 1748; Montgomery and Washington from Frederick in 1776; and Allegany from Washington in 1789.
Finally, Garrett County was split off from Allegany County in 1872, making it the last county to be formed in the state. The county was named for John Work Garrett, then president of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad.
