The location of Armour













Welcome to Armour ...

So far, we have found very little information about Armour. The little that we've found leads us believe that the community is historic.<1>

We've added Armour to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. If you can help us with Armour, please Contact Us.


Armour would have been located within present day Polk County.

We aren't confident of the location of Armour, so consider the above location as an estimate.<2>

Time Zone: The area where Armour was located is in the Eastern Time Zone (EST/EDT) and observes daylight saving time

Note: If you leave Armour and travel west, you will leave Eastern Time and cross into the Central Time Zone (CST/CDT).

Footnotes ...

<1>We use the term 'Historic' broadly and it generally means that the community no longer exists. However, it can also mean that the community might still exist, but was significantly larger or had a more 'official' existence in the past than it does now. Unfortunately our sources of data have proven to be unreliable. If you can provide us with more specific information about Armour, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.

<2>An 'estimated' location is one where we have been given GPS coordinates, but are unable to verify the accuracy. That said, we have some confidence that we have placed the marker near the actual location. A typical reason for being unable to verify a location is that it might be on private property or gone without an obvious trace.

<3>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Armour) to Point B.

If you need the driving distance (or directions), we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Armour. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Armour

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Armour. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 27.8968, Longitude: -81.8631     [Map].
