This beautiful building in the heart of Denton has been tastefully designed to showcase the historic qualities of the town. There is no fee to view the artifacts. I was very interested and pleasantly surprised!

There was a large fire early this morning on the Denton Square. The courthouse was not affected but I'm not sure about the days or times open.
