Argyle Texas History:
Between 1850 and 1867 fourteen families from the Peters colony settled in the Argyle area which was known as Pilot Knob or Waintown. Also in the 1850s, twenty-nine families settled on vacant or unclaimed land in the area. Early settlers raised cattle on the nearby open ranges. In 1878 a post office opened in Emily Wilson’s cabin, 2 miles east of the present day Argyle. In 1881, the Texas and Pacific Railway built a line through the area. James Morrill built and maintained the depot. The new town was named Argyle after a garden in France. The post office was moved from Emily Wilson’s cabin to Argyle that same year.  By the late 1880s, Argyle had two rural mail routes, each thirty miles long, which took a full day to ride. The town became a shipping center for area farmers and ranchers who grew wheat, oaks and other cash crops, and raised sheep and hogs. By 1890, Argyle had 148 residents and several businesses. An1895 fire destroyed the entire business area, but it was rebuilt by the early twentieth century. Argyle is located a seven miles west of Lewisville Lake at the intersections of U.S. 35W, U.S. 377 and FM1830, 19 miles northwest of Grapevine and Lake Grapevine, 19 miles south of Sanger and Lake Ray Roberts, 8 miles southwest of Denton, and 21 miles northwest of Lewisville, Texas.
