History:  

Before James J. Hill bought the Great Northern Railway in 1879 and accepted the task of completing the line from Crookston to the Canadian border, a French-Canadian man founded a town named Louisa, after the French king, in the path of the railroad. However, Hill's company located the new railroad town just south of the Louisa property line and named it Argyle. The early settlement included many French-Canadians. Other settlers included immigrants from England, Norway, Poland, Sweden, Scotland, and Germany. The early townspeople and businessmen were always anxious to make Argyle an attractive community to the region. Today the community still boasts of several businesses, which draw customers from the regional area. Because of threats of flooding, a dike was built on the Red River in 1988.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

ARGYLE, a city in sections 10 and 15 in Middle River Township, bears the name of a county in western Scotland, which is borne also by a township in Maine and by villages in nine other states. This name was proposed by Hon. Solomon G. Comstock for Argyle, Maine, where he was born in 1842 and for whom a township of this county is named. The city was incorporated as a village December 12, 1883. Settlers were on the site in the early 1870s, which was first called Frenchtown and then Louisa; its post office was established in 1878 as Middle River, changing to Argyle in 1882. The city developed on a Great Northern Railway site and had a flour mill, a general store, a hotel, and a number of other businesses.
