Pop. 501

 
Argonia is located in western Sumner County, on US Highway 160.  Argonia is located just 19 miles west of Wellington and an easy 40 minute drive to Wichita.  Argonia is located on the BNSF rail line and has ample availability for future developments. Argonia's manufacturing community includes suppliers to the aviation related businesses in the region. 
 

Consistently recognized by Kansas PRIDE for their ongoing tradition of community service, Argonia's swimming pool hosts regular swim meets, and has revitalized many of the community's parks, including a beautiful River Park south of town which adjoins the city via the Memorial Walk.  This paved tree lined biking and walking path gives the community a peaceful place to get fit and enjoy the comforts of this small community.  The River Park, the wonderful deck, pavilion, and RV facilities are enjoyed by many, overlooking the pristine waters of the Chikaskia River.  Argonia is known as the home of the first woman mayor in the US and hosts the International Rocket Launch.
