The Town of Denton History Museum is going through incredible growing pains, and eventually will be located at the "Snyder House" on Salisbury Street. Until the move, the museum will be open by appointment only and during special events at Town Hall, 201 W. Salisbury Street.

Below are some pictures, events and links celebrating our town's history. The pictures have been donated by our local historian, Barabara Hogan, Denton Orator and our residents that revel in the colorful and exciting, and sometimes mysterious past that is the Town of Denton North Carolina.


Duke University Libraries Digital Collections

Back in the 1930's and 1940's a portrait photgrapher went around to small town's in North Carolina to film random folks with his movie camera, and then would return to show these movies to the community as a way to make money (see yourself on the big screen!). Duke recently digitized these films and posted them on their website for the public to see. They are mesmerizing! Just average folks hamming it up for the camera (or looking shy).

H. Lee Waters Film Collection



Recently the art class/club at South Davidson High School used their talents and creativity to add a little culture and history to the Town's waste containers. Below are some pictures of their beauticification project.
