You could say the small town of Harrietta is a ghost town since most of its buildings on main street are empty. But the small town west of Cadillac has a few houses and a couple of churches. Harrietta was first platted by James M. Ashley in 1889. It was incorporated as a village in 1891 with the name of Gaston. It was named Hariette in 1892 and the present spelling was adopted in 1923. Harrietta is a combination of the names of a railroad official, Harry, and that of his wife, Henrietta.
