  • The courthouse has beautiful architecture. The museum inside is always changing, with interesting topics and awesome illustrations by Joe Duncan. If you're very lucky you might be able to talk sometime into letting you go up onto the roof where you'll get the most amazing and rare view in all of Denton.
  • Commissioners Court still holds its meetings here. Open to the public every Thursday morning at 9. Watch county government business in action. Great museum with Civil War artifacts. And the building itself is quite an artifact. Next time you're on the Square, go inside.
  • Has a wonderful museum inside about the history of Denton, as well as its colleges. Sometimes they open up the top floor, so you are able to look out on the square from the courthouse balcony.
  • It's such a gorgeous place to be. I like sitting on the steps and the benches. It's nice to just people watch.
  • This is one of the best places to come out too in the afternoons or throughout the day and just hang out, you can do Pokemon if you do that or just walk to different restaurants different bars the selection is awesome the People Are Awesome come experience it for yourself!
