Armstrong, Texas, was formed from Bexar County in 1876 and was named after one of the pioneer families. The county's history goes back in the 10,000BC with Paleo-Indians as its original inhabitants. The United States Army defeated the Comanche tribe in the 1874 Red River War, bringing the county under the jurisdiction of the U.S. government. Armstrong is known for its exemplary ranches. This culture started in 1876 when John George and Charles Goodnight established the first ranch with a herd of 1,600 cattle. Claude is Armstrong's county seat while the Claude Independent School District is the main education center serving the whole of Armstrong.
