Armstrong County Appraisal District
About Armstrong County, Texas
Armstrong County is located in the center of Texas’ panhandle. It is relatively sparsely populated with a population of under 2,000 across 914 square miles, of which 909 are land and 5 are water. The county, named after several Texas pioneer families called Armstrong, was founded in 1876 and organized in 1890. Ranching has been and remains an important part of Armstrong’s economy although some of the land has been used for cotton and wheat over the years.
The county seat is Claude, which houses approximately 1,200 of the county’s population. Claude was originally named Armstrong City but was renamed in 1887 after Claude Ayers, the engineer of the Fort Worth and Denver Railway, which was the first train to travel through the area.
