Welcome to Argyle Wisconsin...

We are hard working, genuine and friendly, and always happy to welcome visitors to our community.

The Pecatonica River flows through our community and offers many fishing, boating and picnic opportunities. There are three maintained fishing areas, which includes community boat landings, a sheltered picnic facility and handicapped fishing area. If your family and friends enjoy nature, you will fall in love with what Argyle has to offer.

Argyle is known for its scenery and rolling hills characteristic of the Driftless Area. Argyle has become popular for bicyclists, motorcyclists and small groups passing through and stopping to enjoy our hospitality.

We are located in southwest Wisconsin in eastern Lafayette County. Our charming main street is at the intersection of State Highway 78 & 81. The village operates its own hydroelectric plant. We have the Saxton House Museum which is the boyhood home of Robert M. La Follette known as "Fighting Bob". He founded the progressive movement, was elected Wisconsin's governor in 1900, and served as United States Senator from 1904 until he died in 1925.

With all the amenities the Argyle community has, we would be delighted to have you stay a day, a week or a lifetime. Come visit us soon!
