Why the tagline A Town Within A Park? - To some, a park is defined by its square footage of grass, play equipment or walking trails that accompany it. To Argos, a park is more. A park means growth. It means play. To us, a park means traditions, family time and experiences. It means you are home.
Argos is focused on positive strategic growth. We play hard and we are rich with traditions. We offer numerous opportunities for experiences shared by our residents and their families. And in the near future, Argos will literally be A Town Within A Park...as our town parks will all be connected by a pathway.

History in Under 100 Words
Argos’ history began in 1832 when land was purchased from the Pottawatomi Indians. The town grew from the communities of Sidney and Fremont, the name was later changed to Argos.
Argos was founded at the junction of two major railways and the Michigan Road Highway. In 2001, Argos celebrated their 150th anniversary with a two-day Sesquicentennial Celebration.
Today, many of the homes in Argos display the district architecture of William Foker, an accomplished stone mason.
