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.
