More than just a place where the notorious train robber, Sam Bass, is rumored to have hidden his stolen gold, the Town of Argyle, Texas is an up-and-comer. Only eleven square miles and a current population around 4,000 make up the town of Argyle – although those figures will likely increase in the coming years, as the outward pressure from DFW continues. The local hardwood flooring installer at Texas Hardwood Flooring are prepared to help this up-and-coming community with all its flooring needs.
Argyle has a high median household income and a very low unemployment rate. It has beautifully wooded lots for homes set amidst gently rolling hills. The homes range from humble frame houses to large custom-designed mansions occupying several acres. The town also has a large concentration of equestrian farms.
Incorporated in 1963, Argyle is an excellent location for raising a family, providing an easy commute to job centers in the flourishing Dallas/Fort Worth/Denton “Golden Triangle.” A place where one can spread out on lots that range from one acre to five, Argyle provides a small-town atmosphere with easy access to big city opportunities and experiences.
Besides being a residential community, the Argyle Economic Development Corporation (a.k.a. “EDC”) was founded by the city to “Promote and develop an economic foundation to diversify the tax base consistent with Argyle’s rural, suburban character.” Businesses are highly encouraged to set up shop in this amiable village. For many years, Texas Hardwood Flooring has serviced this rustic location with the finest in hardwood flooring installation.
The first Europeans settled the area in the 1850s, and had built a school, a post office and a Baptist church by 1878. The town was officially founded and named Argyle in 1881. It remained a center for agricultural businesses for many years, hosting a cotton gin, grist mills and general stores. Argyle’s history is chronicled at the Town Hall in the Yvonne Jenkins Memorial History Room.
Today, the town plays host to the Argyle Independent School District, a highly ranked school system (that happens to be renowned for its marching bands!), as well as Liberty Christian School. A number of planned communities are in the process of development, including Bloomfield Homes at Country Lakes, Carmen Custom Homes, Plantation Homes and the unique farm-centered Harvest community. Although retaining its rural, small-town atmosphere, the Argyle area is bursting with energy and growth, and Texas Hardwood Flooring is proud to provide the best hardwood flooring installers for this vicinity.
