Fort Garrett is a Woodford county community at the junction of KY 169 and KY 1967. Garrett Station on the Richmond, Nicholasville, Irvine, and Beattyville (RINEY-B) Railroad operated here beginning in 1889 on the land of William Garrett. The station closed and the tracks were removed in the 1930s. The area was long known for orchards owned by the Garrett and Kaenzig families. The origin of the Fort in the name is obscure.
