History & History Related Items

Armona history:

As with many new towns in western America, the railroad was responsible for creating and naming Armona. The Southern Pacific Railroad had the land. One of the employees, John Yoakum, laid out the town site.

It is not known for sure how the town was actually named, but oral tradition through one of the locals, known as Uncle Jim to the children, says that the name came from a poorly spelled grave marker. He said that a family traveling through the valley lost a loved one and buried her near the place where the water tower now stands, near the corner of 14th avenue and Hanford-Armona Road. The grave marker, found years later by early settlers to the community read "Ar Mona" an adulteration of the words, "Our Mona." Thus, the name of the community, Armona.
