Edmore is a village in Montcalm County of the U.S. state of Michigan. The population was 1,201 at the 2010 census.

Edmore was founded and platted by Edwin B. Moore, a real estate man, in 1878, and named with a contraction of his name. A post office was established on July 22, 1878, with Abraham West as the first postmaster. Its station on the Detroit, Lansing and Northern Railroad was called "Edmore Junction". It was incorporated as a village in 1879 with Moore as its first president.

The Edmore post office, with ZIP code 48829, serves most of Home Township as well as portions of Belvidere Township to the west, Douglass Township to the southwest, Day Township to the south, Ferris Township to the southeast, and Rolland Township to the north in Isabella County.

Edmore is close to the site of the finds of the forged Scotford-Soper-Savage relics.

The Edmore meteorite was discovered on a nearby farm in 2018. It reportedly fell to earth in the 1930s on another farm and had been used as a doorstop since then.


According to the United States Census Bureau, the village has a total area of 1.51 square miles (3.91 km2), all land.


  • M-46 is an east-west highway that nearly bisects the Lower Peninsula of Michigan latitudinally.
