Garretton is a quiet community approximately 7 miles east of North Augusta. In the very early days many of the roads followed Indian Trails.
At one time Garretton had a thriving post office and school, both of which have long since closed. One church serves the spiritual needs of the community; St. Andrews Anglican Church. It is still a very active community church to this day. The church will be celebrating 150 years in June of 2016.
