The area that would become Achille was originally part of the Chickasaw Nation in Indian Territory. The Bloomfield Academy for Chickasaw girls was located 3 miles (4.8 km) southeast of present-day Achille from 1853 until 1914.[4] Cherokee refugees located to the area during the American Civil War and called it “atsila”, meaning fire.[4]

The Missouri, Oklahoma and Gulf Railroad built a line that crossed the region in 1908 and a post office was established in the community in 1910.[4] The community grew from an estimated population of 50 to 500 in 1920.[4] The town’s population had declined to 294 in 1960 and reached a peak number of 506 in 2000.
