Johns’ Well and Campground
Located on Old Justin Road at Taylor Road in Argyle, just east of I-35W, the site of Johns’ Well and Campground is now commemorated by a small park area encorporating the well, a bench and historical marker. The campground was originally established in 1884 by members of the Prairie Mound Methodist Church on land provided by Hardin Johns.
There is a path leading off into the undergrowth to the south east of the well, little else remains to indicate the location of the 10 day annual camp meetings.
On June 26th, 1986 the Texas Sesquicentennial Wagon Train stopped here. A marker has been placed on the south side of the well (away from the road) to commemorate this event.
The site is photographed at street level by Google Maps at Johns’ Well.
