Denton Living

Welcome To the Town of Denton Website

Denton is a small town located in southeastern Davidson County, North Carolina. The town occupies 1.98 square miles, and is situated approximately 30 miles southeast of Winston-Salem..

Home to nearly 1,700 residents, and over 170 businesses, Denton represents small-town America at its best. For those who like to stay close to home, you can find a wide variety of restaurants, retail stores, and service providers, and small community churches right here in town. Our close proximity to Charlotte, Winston-Salem, and Greensboro allows for an easy commute for those who wish to end their busy workday in a quiet place.

With High Rock Lake only 5 miles away, Denton residents enjoy one of the most coveted recreational areas in the state. We are also home to the Southeast Old Threshers' Reunion, at the Denton Farmpark—the largest display of antique farm, gasoline, and steam equipment in the Southeastern United States.

Denton is supported by our own police and fire departments. Our water treatment plant supplies abundant fresh drinking water for Denton and surrounding communities.

Whether you are looking for a quiet place to raise a family, or a place to operate your business, we believe you will find Denton the perfect place in which to build your future.
