What to Do
Home to the Addington Station Antiques, a fabulous antique shop where you will surely step back in time. Stop by Monument Hill to see the Chisholm Trail Lookout Point where the drovers rode north from the Red River to a nearby campground with historical information and a drover's gravesite. The Lookout was visible to trail hands more than 20 miles away. Nearby, view ruts were created when the cattle drive came through the area.
The community was founded in the 1890's along the right-of-way of the Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific Railroad. A post office was established at the townsite in January 1896, and the village was named for its first postmaster, James P. Addington. Incorporated in 1901, Addington showed promise as an agricultural community with cattle, hogs, cotton, and corn as major commodities.
