Harriet (Harriett) is on U.S. Highway 67 and the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway, ten miles northeast of San Angelo in northeastern Tom Green County. A post office was established there in 1909 with Charles P. Lovelace as postmaster. A month later the post office changed its name from Harriet to Harriett and continued to served the area until it was moved to San Angelo in 1927.

Harriet was shown on the 1984 county highway map with a railroad station and, two miles northeast, a cemetery.
