Wyandotte, Oklahoma is in Ottawa County. The Society of Friends established a mission there in 1869, on land donated by the Wyandotte Tribal Council, where they operated a boarding school for Seneca, Wyandotte and Shawnee children. In 1871, the railroad laid tracks in the area and, in 1876, the Prairie City post office moved three miles east, to the current site of Wyandotte, and changed its designation to Grand River, which was renamed Wyandotte in 1894.
