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 history began in 1832 when land was purchased from the Pottawatami Indians. The town was first known as Sidney and later the name was changed to Argos. In 2001, Argos celebrated their 150th anniversary with a two-day Sesquicentennial Celebration.

Argos owns and supplies the townspeople with electricity, water and wastewater services. Our utility departments are able to service a multitude of needs for the community.

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.

Argos is guaranteed to offer an excellent quality of life experience!
