History of Fort Arbuckle

Fort Arbuckle was built in Indian Territory (later the state of Oklahoma) on April 19, 1851 and was formally designated a fort in June 1851. It was established by the U.S. Army to protect the region's relocated Chickasaw and Choctaw tribes from raids by Kiowa and Comanche tribes. The fort was also visited by wagon trains of Mormons and other emigrants enroute to the California gold fields.

On June 24, 1870, Fort Arbuckle was abandoned when the establishment of Fort Sill rendered its further maintenance as a military post unnecessary.
