The town of Teller, named for Willard Teller, was located in Larrabee Township near the Smoky Hill River. It was established in 1887. The expectation of a railroad along the Smoky prompted the establishment of the town. Teller never had a post office, but did have a store and a blacksmith shop, as well as a few dwellings. In 1890, Teller became a ghost town.
The ethnicity of its settlers is unknown.
