"Before the incorporation of Arma it was known as Rust, a small coal camp laid out in 1886. Rust was platted on Ozark ridge where a nice slope from the center of the town in all directions made perfect drainage -- desirable in any city. It was situated in the midst of the most beautiful agricultural portion of Crawford County. The site was an ideal one and people were attracted from the desire for a healthy place ot live. It is about "200 feet higher than Pittsburg guaranteeing an abundance of pure fresh air". Rust was about three blocks wide and four blocks long, bounded on the east by the railroad. It had a population of 379 in 1909. The name of Arma came form one of the owners of most of the land north and east of the camp at the time of its incorporation -- W. F. Armacost"
