Almartha is an unincorporated community in northern Ozark County, Missouri.[2] It is located about thirteen miles north of Gainesville and four miles southeast of Wasola on Route 95. The village is located in a valley on a tributary of Spring Creek.[1] Several homes are located there. The old mill and current fish hatchery of Rockbridge lies downstream on Spring Creek about six miles to the east.[3]

A post office called Almartha was established in 1855, and remained in operation until 1969.[4] The community was named from the first names of early settlers Albert and Martha McSpadden.[5]
