Sneak preview of the newest exhibit at the Courthouse-on-the-Square Museum Friday, October 4 from 6:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m.
Denton -- Much of Denton County's growth can be traced back to some form of transportation. Early days saw the hardships of Peters Colonists arriving by wagons and visitors coming by stagecoaches.
Industrial development followed settlement of the area and cattle driving and railroads that brought prosperity and growth to the county.
When the Texas & Pacific Railroad's first passenger train arrived in Denton from Fort Worth on April 1, 1881, crowds celebrated with barbecue and barrels of whiskey. Please join us on Friday, October 4 from 6:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. for a sneak preview of the new transportation exhibit at Courthouse-on-the-Square Museum, 110 West Hickory, Denton, Texas.
Barbecue and "sweet tea" will be served.
All Courthouse Museum programs are free and open to the public. Handicapped parking and accessibility are through the north entrance.
