Lamont was named after homesteader James "Jimmie" Lamont. Lamont had a small store in his home and is credited with installing one of the first windmills in the area. With the discovery and drilling of oil in the area, the need for a post office was filled by establishing it in Lamont's store. The post office was named Lamont. Submitted by Dana B. Hannon.
