The History of Argyle, NY

1600s

 Before it was the town of Argyle, the Mohicans and the Mohawk tribes used the land as hunting and fishing grounds, and for fur trading with the Dutch New Netherland Colony at Fort Orange (present-day Albany).

1700s

The first European settlers arrived from Argyllshire, Scotland. German, Irish, Dutch and Polish settlers were also attracted to the area. In 1786 Argyle was officially formed as a town, and the name they adopted the name of their native land to the town.

1900s

 The Moses Kill provided waterpower for mills in the village, which later featured the early a library and running water for the residents.

Today

Aryle is a melting pot and no longer a purely Scottish community. However, the agricultural aspect of the settler’s native home had some lasting influence, since modern-day Argyle is still fairly rural.

Fun Fact: Until 2019, Argyle was one of New York’s few remaining “dry towns,” and the largest! Today the town is home to its first farm brewery: Scotlander Brewing Company. Plus, it’s the namesake for another local brewery based out of Greenwich, with roots in the once-dry town.
