Office of History and Culture
The Denton County Office of History and Culture operates the 1896 Courthouse-on-the-Square and the Denton County Historical Park.
Our mission is to interpret our past, give context to our present, and provide a greater direction to our future. We are committed to the development and experience of Denton County history and dedicated to the cultural enrichment of our community. Our purpose is to welcome, inform, and inspire.
We are a place of learning and discovery that provides educational opportunities and learning resources to the Denton County community as a public service of the local county government. Some of the ways we do this is by offering museum tours, in-school presentations, historical lectures, community programming, and by maintaining a collection of artifacts and documents that have historical significance for preservation and posterity.
We invite you to join the conversation about history and education in the county and explore the many benefits that are available to you through the Office of History and Culture. Our office is open to everyone whether you are interested in volunteering, donating, touring, or just simply want to drop by. We can’t wait to meet you!
