Museum archives and the Denton County Historical Commission records are available on the first floor of the Courthouse-on-the-Square. The Historical Commission maintains a continuing record of all cemeteries and burials in Denton County that is especially helpful to genealogists. Archival records also include documents and photographs of early Denton County people and places. The commission and museum library has dozens of volumes on local history, Texas history, and guides to antiques and collectibles available for on-site research.
The Denton Record-Chronicle has donated its collection of historical photographs to the museum. A small portion of photographs are available to the public at this time.
