This courthouse is officially called Denton County Courthouse on the Square, and was constructed in 1896.In addition to county offices, the "Courthouse-on-the-Square Museum" also calls it home. The courthouse is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Also on the grounds in the burial place of John B. Denton, the county's and city's namesake.
