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

We've added Armstrong to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Armstrong - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Armstrong, please Contact Us.


Various Identification Codes ...

GNIS Codes ...

The U.S. Board on Geographic Names (BGN) was created to address the problems caused by spelling and naming variations. The BGN will usually recognize an existing name or, when necessary, establish a name for a geographic feature (such as a mountain, lake, river, stream, city, town, village, dam, bridge, etc).

The BGN names are kept in a database called the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS) and it is the official Federal repository. The GNIS is operated and maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).

A unique and permanent identification number has been assigned for each name in the GNIS database. These names and identifiers are definitive and it is intended that they are to be used by all departments of the Federal Government:

GNIS ID for Armstrong: 1952411

GNIS ID for McDowell County: 1025836

GNIS ID for North Carolina: 1027616

FIPS Codes ...

In a past effort, various federal agencies worked together to create a set of codes with a purpose similar to the GNIS codes. These codes are called the Federal Information Processing Standard (or the FIPS 55 codes). Although they are still used by some organizations, the FIPS codes are obsolete and will ultimately be replaced by the GNIS codes.

While FIPS codes have been assigned to all counties and states, a specific code has not been assigned to Armstrong. The following FIPS codes apply to the State and County:

State Code:  37 (North Carolina)
County Code:  111 (McDowell County)

Regional Codes ...

For statistical purposes, the US Census Bureau has divided the country into four Regions. Armstrong would have been located in Region #3 (the South Region).

In turn, the US Census Bureau has further divided each Region into Divisions. Armstrong would have been located in Division #5 (the South Atlantic Division).

The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has created ten Federal Regions. Armstrong would have been located in Region IV (Region 4).

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has created ten Management Regions. Armstrong would have been located in Region IV (Region 4).

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 Armstrong, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
