The town was named after the historical region of Attica in Greece. Land for the City of Attica was purchased in late June, 1884 and became the end of the Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe Railway. The town was incorporated later on February 16, 1885 with a population of 1,500. The population grew further until the Cherokee Outlet in northern Oklahoma was opened by a Land run in 1893, at which point many people moved south to that territory. The land for Attica was purchased from the Osage Land Trust, which also held the surrounding farmland. According to documents from Attica, the Osage Land Trust was held by the US government for the Osage Tribe. Settlers could buy tracts of 160 acres (quarter-sections) for $1.25/acre, and the money would go to the tribe. For reference, some of that land sold in 1909 for $12/acre.
On May 12, 2004, the town was damaged by an F4 tornado that was featured on an episode of Shockwave on the History Channel. Attica was a real boom town,, growing up almost overnight. Within ninety days, the original town site was sold out and a new addition was put on the market. The lumber for the first building was hauled from Harper by an ox team. The building was built by J.E. Hamilton in July, 1884, and was where the Tredenick business building now stands. He also established the first grocery and general store in town. Another of the early buildings was a hotel which was known as the National Hotel where the Champlin service station now stands. Attica has many interesting and unique people making it a cultural and interesting place to visit.
