Denton's Courthouse and Square are so well maintained and beautifully landscaped, and we really enjoyed our afternoon on the square. It's definitely worth a visit while you're in the area as it's one of Texas' prettiest.

Saw the lights 2 blocks away and had to investigate. Glad we did. The courthouse was beautiful. Lots to see and do around the square, even late at night.

I am not sure if they have reopened. There was a large fire in a building on the square a few months back and the museum had some smoke damage. I am sorry that I don't have any other information for you
