    A Brief History of Armstrong Township:
    Armstrong township was the second one north of the Conemaugh, and formerly encompassed nearly half of present-day Indiana County south of the Purchase Line. The township was named after Colonel (later General) Armstrong who commanded the celebration against Kittanning. It seems to have been organized in 1784 or 1785, as the earliest assessment was in 1785.
