A gravel road called Antone Lane runs south of and roughly parallel to Route 26, to which it connects both east of Mitchell, in Wheeler County, and west of Dayville, in Grant County. The road crosses Rock Creek, a tributary of the John Day River, at Antone. The Ochoco Mountains and the Ochoco National Forest are directly south of Antone.
Antone was the site of a U.S. Army barracks built to protect miners and other travelers after Chief Paulina's Northern Paiute warriors killed several soldiers in this vicinity in 1864. The barracks were along a wagon road, renamed The Dalles Military Road in about 1870, that connected The Dalles on the Columbia River with gold mines near Canyon City.
