Kids Encyclopedia Facts

Almora is an unincorporated community in Kane County, in the U.S. state of Illinois.

History

Almora had its start in the 1880s when the railroad was extended to that point. A post office called Almora was established in 1885, and remained in operation until it was discontinued in 1910. Although an older source states Almora was named after "a European city", a more recent source proposes the name may be after Almora, in India.
