On Saturday March 30 from 11 AM to 3 PM, the Museum will host its 40th anniversary celebration and unveil a new exhibit, 40 for 40: Forty Artifacts for Forty Years.

In 1979, the Denton County Courthouse-on-the-Square Museum opened on the second floor in the former 16th District Courtroom. Over the years, the museum has acquired an impressive collection of Denton County history. From apple corers to zithers, the museum’s artifacts offer vignettes into the stories of our community. We are celebrating this milestone by showcasing a selection of 40 items from our collection.
