About Argos, Indiana

Argos is a small, quaint town located in north central Indiana. We pride ourselves on the small town feel that makes living in the Midwest a joy every day. Safety, great schools, proximity to large cities and inexpensive cost of living make Argos a great choice.

Argos Community Park opened in 2001 with baseball, softball and soccer fields, playgrounds for small children and walking trails complete with a nature trail through wetlands. There are pavilions that can be rented for community and family oriented activities. Argos is home to a diversified religious background, making individual worship preference available.
