Poised on a hill overlooking the Choptank River, Denton has a picturesque Courthouse Green surrounded by colonial revival style homes. Downtown Denton’s Museum of Rural Life depicts historical lifestyles of rural Caroline County. The museum includes the Taylor-Brown Dwelling, the Painter’s Range log cabin and portions of the Chance’s Desire and Skillington’s Right properties.

Denton hosts a variety of events throughout the year. The annual Caroline Summerfest in August is a free, family oriented event featuring live entertainment, fine arts and crafts, strolling entertainment, free KidzArt activities, river cruises on the Choptank River, food, vendors, fireworks, hot-rods, and antique car displays.

As Denton is crisscrossed with rivers and one of the best ways to get into the rhythm of the community is to stop by the Choptank River Heritage Center and Joppa Steamboat Wharf in West Denton to rent a canoe or kayak or pick up a copy of the “Choptank & Tuckahoe River Guide” and take advantage of 15 self-guided heritage paddle trips.

Our Mission

To Protect & Preserve Downtown Denton as the cultural heart of our Community


They say there is art in the heart of everyone. In Downtown Denton, we believe that’s true, and honor that through supporting our fine arts programs and growing artists in town.


Music is the heartbeat of Downtown Denton. Apart from food, it’s a singular element that can unite individuals in an instant. We want to ensure that energy and thriving beat sustains for generations to come.


Denton’s history is rich and complex. Our hope is that we are able to encapsulate those moments and share them with residents and visitors, so that we may remember how unique our town truly is.


A town with city limits does not a community make. Committed individuals with a passion for helping others and preserving our culture does, though. Let’s grow and enrich our community, together.



Art & Music are the heart of Downtown Denton

Downtown Square in Denton, Texas

Discover the social, artistic, and cultural hub of Denton

Shops, restaurants, bars, event venues, and more line the streets of downtown Denton while many annual events and festivals take place in and around the area. Visitors and residents alike enjoy gathering with friends and family on the courthouse lawn with coffee from Jupiter House, ice cream from Beth Marie's, or perhaps even a bottle of wine from The Chestnut Tree. The Discover Denton Visitor Center, located next to LSA Burger, offers brochures, maps, and gifts to anyone looking to obtain more information about Denton.


The Square has been a gathering place for commerce and trade as early as the late 1800s. The earliest known buildings included hardware stores, grocery stores, banks, a saloon, and the opera house where Recycled Books exists today. Much of the historic architecture of the downtown Denton has been preserved or restored, with most of the area holding a place on the National Register of Historic Places through the work of the Denton Main Street Association.

The iconic courthouse that currently stands at the center of the Square was built in 1896 after the first courthouse burned down and the second was struck by lightening. Today the square serves as a reminder of Denton County’s history. It is home to the Courthouse-on-the-Square Museum as well as John B. Denton’s grave. Lectures, exhibits, and community organized events are scheduled at the museum throughout the year, keeping this local gem an active site for experiencing the past. A lesser known talking point with regard to Denton's 1896 Courthouse is that it is allegedly haunted by the ghost of a cowboy who wanders around the top floors at night. The basement also previously incorporated holding cells for prisoners, so there have been allegations from employees and visitors alike of paranormal activity and strange noises throughout the lower levels of the Courthouse.
