Almont, twelve miles north of DeKalb in northwestern Bowie County, was named for Almont Hill, where the first houses were built. A post office was opened there in 1893 with Edwin Thompson as postmaster. In 1896 the settlement had a population of twenty-five. The post office was closed in 1904. In 1984 Almont consisted of a church, a business, and a few scattered houses.
