Denton County Tidbits

In 1836, when Texas won its independence from Mexico, the region currently known as Denton County, Texas was inhabited by Native Indians. The white pioneers hadn’t yet arrived in the area. The population of the Texas area was mainly located in the southeastern part from approximately San Antonio eastward to the Galveston region as well as the current location of the Houston region and then southwards to the border, during the days of Mexican and Spanish rule.

Denton Texas, which is the county seat of Denton County, is located next to Interstate 35E, approximately 39 miles north/northwest of downtown Dallas. These days, Denton County is the home to both the Texas Women’s University as well as the University of North Texas.

A man named John Denton is considered the namesake of Denton County Texas. Volunteers were depended upon to patrol the new republic, during the early years of the Republic of Texas. Mr. Denton, answered the call, and just happened to be a preacher from Clark County. Mr. Denton was commissioned captain of a company in a Brigadier General in the Fourth Brigade in the Texas Militia of a man named Edward Tarrant. Mr. Tarrant is also the namesake of Tarrant County, Texas, which is the county that surrounds what is currently known as Fort Worth, Texas.

In 1841, during an expedition, which was heavily involved in an Indian fight that was located just east of Fort Worth, while searching for Indian settlements, John Denton was killed. Mr. Denton left behind six children and a widow, at the time of his death.

In 1856, some fifteen years later, a rancher in Denton County named John Chisum had heard about the fate of Mr. Denton through his Father who served with him during those first years of fighting for the independence of Texas. Subsequently, a grave was discovered next to a Denton County Creek and from all of the physical descriptions that were available, it seems to be a match that of John Denton. Mr. Chisum wound up burying the remains on his ranch. In 1900, almost 50 years later, the remains of John Denton were provided to the ranch owners of the Old Settler’s Association of Denton County for burial in the community that currently bears his name. These days, the grave of John Denton is located on the grounds of the Denton County Courthouse.

Texas has one of the largest collections of old courthouses that can be located anywhere in the U.S., as courthouses go. In 1979, the Courthouse Museum, which is located on the first floor of the Denton County Texas Courthouse was completed and opened. There are some excellent exhibits that depict the history of Denton County, that includes frontier artifacts, such as old farming equipment, Indian pottery, and vintage weapons in very interesting museum in Texas. Also, there are probably interesting special temporary exhibits that are on display through a particular date. These temporary exhibits might be anything through the period of modern transportation from the frontier period of time.

Located only a few blocks southwest of the Denton County Courthouse is the Bayless/Selby Museum, which was completed and opened in 2001, and was at one time a two room farmhouse owned by a man named Samuel Bayless. Initially, the house was located outside of the community and over the years Mr. Bayless added rooms to the house. After an altercation on his property, Mr. Samuel Bayless died. A Mr. and Mrs. R. Selby, who were friends of the Bayless family, subsequently purchased the house. The architectural style of the house was the Victorian Queen style. The grounds include a gazebo, a rosebud allee, as well as a Victorian antique rose garden.

Up until 1970, the Selby family still owned the house. Around the year 1900, the community of Denton became the owner of the house, and eventually auctioned the house off to a member of the historical commission of Denton. Fortunately, the new owner relocated the house and provided it to Denton County and these days, both tourists and residents alike are able to enjoy this historic county museum. The house is furnished by donations from the residents of Denton County in pre-1908 fashion. The Daugherty Collection of hand painted Porcelain is one of the main collections on exhibit. The Bayless/Selby House Museum is located in the historical portion of Denton County at 317 West Mulberry Street.
