He was the son of Daniel McIntyre and Ann (Walker) McIntyre. The family came to the United States in 1774.

He was a member of the New York State Assembly from Montgomery County in 1798–99, 1800,1800–01, 1802, 1804, 1812 and 1820–21. He was Deputy Secretary of State from 1801 to 1806, and New York State Comptroller from 1806 to 1821.

He was member of the New York State Senate from the Middle District in 1822, and from the Fourth District from 1823 to 1826; sitting in the 45th, 46th, 47th, 48th and 49th New York State Legislatures.

He was a presidential elector in 1828 and 1840.

In partnership with his son-in-law David Henderson, he ran iron ore mines in and around North Elba, New York, including the North Elba Ironworks, the McIntyre Mine and the Adirondack Iron Company. He was also involved in the early development of Jersey City, New Jersey.

From 1821 to 1834, he and his partner Henry Yates (brother of Governor Joseph C. Yates) operated the lotteries in New York and other states. Among others, they sold tickets for the Union College lottery, which led to a controversy that was settled only in 1854.

On May 20, 1842, the Ithaca and Owego Railroad was sold at a public sale of the Comptroller in Albany to Henry Yates and Archibald McIntyre for the sum of $4,500, an additional sum of $13,500 being paid for the equipment. Yates and McIntyre then reorganized the road on April 13, 1843, under the name of Cayuga and Susquehanna Railroad Co. In 1849, they sold it to the Leggett's Gap Railroad, and it became later part of the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western Railroad.

He was buried at the Albany Rural Cemetery in Menands, New York, of which he was one of the first trustees.

The MacIntyre Mountains in the Adirondacks are named after him.

Lexington, California

Lexington, California, is a ghost town in Santa Clara County, now submerged by the Lexington Reservoir. Originally located along Los Gatos Creek, the town was 550 feet above sea level.Lexington started out as a sawmill built in 1848 by Isaac Branham and Julian Jank. Zachariah "Buffalo" Jones bought the mill for $3000 and laid out a town called "Jones Mill". In 1860 John P. Hennings bought some of the property and changed the name to Lexington, after his home town of Lexington, Kentucky.Lexington was a stop on the stagecoach route from Los Gatos to Santa Cruz. In the 1860s, the saw mills moved up into the hills and Lexington began to lose importance. In 1880, a narrow gauge railroad from Los Gatos to Santa Cruz was completed, bypassing Lexington and accelerating its decline; its post office had already been transferred to Alma, a mile south, where the trains stopped and which was the transfer point to stagecoaches until the line was completed.The railroad ceased operations in March 1940, following major damage by a winter storm and the completion of State Route 17 that same year. When the Lexington Reservoir was created in 1952, both Lexington and Alma were officially abandoned and SR 17 was rerouted to its present location. The visible ruins under Lexington Reservoir are actually those of Alma, not Lexington; building foundations and original pavements of roads are sometimes visible during droughts.

The nearby unincorporated town of Lexington Hills is a reminder of the former town; it combines several villages in the Santa Cruz Mountains.

The Lexington Murders was one of the most notable crimes in California during the 19th century. Three men were responsible for the brutal murders of William Peter Renowden and Archibald McIntyre in Lexington, on March 11, 1883.

Lexington murders

The Lexington murders was one of the most notable crimes in California during the 19th century.

MacIntyre Mountains

The MacIntyre Mountains or MacIntyre Range is a range of mountains in the High Peaks region of the Adirondacks, due west of Mount Marcy, in northeastern New York State. The range runs 8 miles (13 km) from southwest to northeast. Its sheer southwest slope makes up one side of Indian Pass, and a northeastern spur forms the cliffs of Avalanche Pass.

The range includes Iroquois, Mount Marshall, Wright, and Algonquin, the second highest peak in the state. Despite being spelled differently, it is named for the founder of the McIntyre Iron Works at Tahawus, New York, Archibald McIntyre.

MacNaughton Mountain

MacNaughton Mountain is a mountain located in Essex County, New York, named after James MacNaughton (1851–1905), the grandson of Archibald McIntyre.

The mountain is part of the Street Range of the Adirondack Mountains.

The western slopes and north end of MacNaughton Mountain drain into Preston Ponds and Duck Hole pond, the source of the Cold River, which drains into the Raquette River, the Saint Lawrence River in Canada, and into the Gulf of Saint Lawrence.

The eastern slopes and south end of MacNaughton Mtn. drain into the southern Indian Pass Brook, thence into Henderson Lake, the source of the Hudson River, and into New York Bay.

MacNaughton Mountain is within the High Peaks Wilderness Area of New York's Adirondack Park.

According to early surveys, MacNaughton Mountain's elevation was 3,976 ft (1,212 m), short of the 4,000 ft needed to qualify it as one of the Adirondack High Peaks. According to the 1953 survey, the mountain did reach that height, while four of the 46 peaks on the list fell short. However, the list was kept the same because those were the original 46.

Since then, a survey has measured the elevation at exactly 3,983 ft (1,214 m).

Because it is not one of the officially recognized Adirondack High Peaks and it does not offer notable views, MacNaughton is not climbed as frequently as many other mountains. There is no maintained trail or clear herd path for most of the climb from the end of the nearest trail at Wallface Pond.
