      Rich in local history, Argyle Hollow (now occupied by the lake) once was part of the stage route between Galena and Beardstown. Several times a week the high-wheeled, cumbersome coaches with their double teams of horses rumbled through these beautiful hills and valleys. The region has been rich in coal, clay and limestone resources. Historically, individuals commonly opened and dug their own "drift mines" to supplement their income. Several limestone quarries continue to operate in the region. In 1948, the state purchased the land from local farmers and homesteaders, erected a dam to create the lake and dedicated Argyle Lake State Park to the citizens of Illinois. Today, whether your preference is viewing wildflowers and fresh foliage in the spring, picnicking, fishing and boating in the summer, appreciating the brilliant fall colors or sledding and snowmobiling in the winter, Argyle Lake State Park is a great place to visit.
