Aberdeen (formerly, Aberdeen Station and Tibbets) is an unincorporated community in Inyo County, California.[1] It is located 12.5 miles (20 km) north-northwest of Independence,[2] at an elevation of 3914 feet (1193 m).[1]

Aberdeen was originally located east-northeast of its present site at 36°59′30″N 118°12′40″W / 36.99167°N 118.21111°W / 36.99167; -118.21111 on the Southern Pacific Railroad.[2] The Tibbotts post office opened in 1895, moved and changed its name to Aberdeen in 1896, closed in 1898, reopened in 1921 and closed for good in 1934.[2] The name Tibbets commemorates a local ranching family.[2]
