This location was open to the public and was filled with historical facts. If you are looking for an inexpensive outing with the family this is it, and enjoy the ice cream shop across the street.

This beautiful building in the heart of Denton has been tastefully designed to showcase the historic qualities of the town. There is no fee to view the artifacts. I was very interested and pleasantly surprised!

I didn't know what to expect, but it was much more than I could have imagined! There are interactive experiences there for children including cotton paddles!
