Summary
With its large trees and rolling hills, the small town of Argyle is nestled between the Grand Prairie and the Blackland Prairie. In the 1850s, settlers found Argyles natural resources perfect for growing crops and raising cattle. In 1881, when the Texas and Pacific Railroad built tracks through Denton County, Argyle became a town. Those who led the way to bring modern conveniences and provide protection for the people of Argyle are pointed out in this book, which tracks Argyles history from a farming community to a modern town. Through the years, Argyles citizens have worked together to benefit the community through local charitable organizations that include the Argyle Food Pantry, the Argyle Seniors Activities Center, the Communities Civic League, Inc., and the Argyle Education Foundation
