Originally Native American land, the town of Anadarko began in 1873 with the construction of a post office. It was meant to named after the Nadarko Indian tribe, but the typist added the "A" at the beginning in error. Nevertheless, the name stayed.
Today, the town is primarily known for its strong Native American prescence, influence, way of life, culture, and heritage. The area is also known for its agriculture.
