Attica, Kansas is next to the tracks of the old Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe. That's probably all you need to know about its founding beyond that it was incorporated in 1885 (along with most of the other towns in this part of Kansas).
The tracks are shiny and straight--they're still in use. You'll notice the headlight of an approach freight on the siding.
It looks like Attica remains a working grain shipping point.
