Retta is a small rural community located on Farm Road 2738 on both sides of the Johnson-Tarrant county boundary, twelve miles northeast of Cleburne and just east of the southernmost city limits of Fort Worth. Retta was a station on the International and Great Northern line in the 1940s and may have developed after the railroad completed track between Waco and Fort Worth in 1903, though a 1905 railroad map showing I&GN stations does not list the community. Most of this track between Waco and Fort Worth was abandoned in 1967–68. Between 1940 and the mid-1960s Retta consistently reported a population of twenty. Thereafter no further population statistics were available.
