Armstrong County lies in the southeastern part of the Texas Panhandle. The county seat of Claude was established in 1890. There are three communities in Armstrong County: Washburn, Wayside and Goodnight. The Extension Program, directed by the Armstrong County Extension Program Council, strives to serve a population who derives its main income from agriculture which includes wheat, grain sorghum, soybeans and cattle. Major points of interest include a beautiful scenic drive across Palo Duro Canyon which is 15 miles due south of Claude on State Highway 207. The Armstrong County Museum and Gem Theater are also rich sources of county history.
