Almond, also known as Flat Rock, is an unincorporated community in Randolph County, Alabama, United States.


The community was most likely named for its first postmaster, Almond P. Hunter. A post office called Almond was established in 1852, and remained in operation until it was discontinued in 1913.

Almond has never reported separately as an unincorporated community on the U.S. Census. However, the 8th beat/precinct of Randolph County, was named "Flat Rock" (the earlier name for Almond) from 1870-1910 and as Almond from 1920-1950. In 1960, the precinct was merged as part of a larger reorganization of counties into the census division of Wadley.
