Prior to Oklahoma's statehood Abbott was located in Wade County, Choctaw Nation.
Abbott, Indian Territory was granted a United States Post Office on March 3, 1897; it closed on July 11, 1899. The community, a short-lived boomtown created by the logging industry—which used its rail spur to ship timber via the St. Louis-San Francisco Railway—is no longer in existence.
More information on Abbott may be found in the Pushmataha County Historical Society.
