"Ghost" town of 
Pottawatomie County, Oklahoma

Location:  West of present-day Tribbey
Established:  1850
Named for:  unknown

Council Town was the first national capitol of the new Seminole Nation.  Seminole Chief,  John Jumper, Pascofar, James Factor, and Tustenucochee signed the treaty which would locate the Seminoles adjacent to a prolific spring that formed the source of a creek that was also named Council Creek.  The new Capitol town was actually in existence less than three years, from early 1859 when the U. S. Government was building the Council House, until shortly after August of 1861.
