Denton, Texas

Established 1857, the seat of Denton County was named for John B. Denton, pioneer lawyer, preacher, and soldier. His grave is on the courthouse lawn. The city and county are a blend of agricultural and modern industries. Recreational activities include intercollegiate sports, golf, hunting, and a wide range of water sports at nearby reservoirs.

Standing guard over the city is the stately Denton County Courthouse. Designed in 1895, it was restored in 1987. With its massive limestone walls and soaring clock tower, it has been called "the most picturesque pile of rocks in North Texas." Around the courthouse square are a variety of antique shops, restaurants, and specialty stores. Shoppers find great treasures in shops within its award-winning downtown district. Bed and breakfast accommodations are also available.

Cultural attractions center around the Arts Complex and two major state universities: The University of North Texas and Texas Woman's University. TWU, including the Dallas and Houston campuses, is the nation's largest university primarily for women.
