Almira is located at the junction of Farm roads 995 and 1399, eight miles northwest of Linden in northwestern Cass County. The area was settled before the Civil War. A post office was established there in 1886 with Elijah J. Hanes as postmaster and was discontinued in 1905. During the 1890s the settlement comprised a store and blacksmith shop and a population of twenty-five. In 1904 the community had 102 residents, but no subsequent population figures were recorded until 2000, when the population was thirty. In 1936 Almira had a school, a business, and scattered houses. By 1983 the school had been closed, and one small business was in operation at the site.
