Argyle was originally named Saussy. The name of the town was changed to Argyle in 1899. It was incorporated as a town on November 18, 1901. The name change was to commemorate Fort Argyle, which was in turn named for John Campbell, the Duke of Argyle.
Argyle was originally a sawmill town, and at one point, had a meat market, bank, a barber shop, grocery store, two mercantile stores, pharmacy, and a silent movie theater. It also had a jail and a police department.
In 1908, a school was built, named Union High.
Recently, Argyle has acquired its own volunteer fire department.

Dupont originated as a railroad stop, named Station Number 12. Later it was called Suwannoochee, then Lawton, and finally, Dupont, in honor of Captain John Peter Augustus Dupont, an early settler. Dupont moved to the area from Darien.
Dupont was incorporated as a town on March 3, 1874. The first newspaper in the county, the Dupont Okefinokean, was located in the town. It was established in 1876 by John Peter Augustus Dupont, but was only published for a year or two.
The Dupont Seminary was a local school which boarded students from other parts of the county.

Fargo is one of Georgia's oldest settlements. It was established by the timber industry.
Fargo's first school was built around 1898. The present school site was erected in 1954.
Sawmills have always played a large part in Fargo's economy. St. Regis Paper Company established a large chip mill in Fargo in 1959, which closed in the 1980s.
Fargo is also a popular tourism destination with its proximity to Stephen Foster State Park and the Okefenokee Swamp. The Suwanee River Visitors Center opened on the banks of the Suwanee River in recent years, and the Suwanee River Eco-Lodge and Conference Center opened in 2010. Fargo is also currently operating the nine-hole Fargo Golf Course, which is open to the public and serves as the home course for the Clinch County High School golf team.
