Anadarko, also spelled Anadarco, is a small rural community located on Farm Road 1662 about sixteen miles southwest of Henderson in southwestern Rusk County. The town was established in the 1840s, and Julien Sidney Devereux, owner of the nearby Monte Verdi Plantation, was one of the founders. A post office was established on November 12, 1849. William I. Barry was appointed the first postmaster. Though the post office closed in 1878, the town served area farmers into the twentieth century. County maps in the 1930s showed homes, several churches, and a school. No population figures were available for the historic community until 2000, when Anadarko reported thirty residents.
