2014 Denton

Originally constructed in 1896, Denton's renovated historic courthouse elegantly expresses the community's dedication to historic preservation.  The City of Denton carried out over 350 revitalization projects in and around the courthouse square in the past 26 years, resulting in one of Texas' largest and most prestine historic downtowns. As Denton's population continues to expand at the incredible rate of 41%, many residents choose to live in downtown historic homes, apartments, and lofts, benefiting from Denton's sustained investment in community heritage development. Visitors to Denton will enjoy the walkable city center, a wide array of shops and restaurants, and the exceptional Denton County African American Museum.
