Claude este un oraș și sediul comitatului Armstrong GR6 din statul Texas, Statele Unite ale Americii. Conform recensământului Census 2000, populația era de 1.313 locuitori. Deși se găsește la aproximativ 48 de km (sau 30 de mile) la est de Amarillo, Claude este considerat parte a Zonei metropolitane Amarillo, din sudul zonei numite Texas Panhandle.

During the first half of the 16th century, the Spanish conquistador Francisco Coronado and his party passed through Claude and Tule Canyon, a scenic wonder to the south of Claude off Texas State Highway 207.

Claude was originally named Armstrong City after several area ranches named Armstrong. The name, however, was changed to Claude in 1887. Claude Ayers, the engineer of the Fort Worth and Denver Railway, the first train to travel through the area, requested that the town be named in his honor.
