Owned by the citizens of Denton County, the Historical Park is programmed by the Denton County Historical Commission as a hub for residents and visitors to grow and learn together. It is located on Mulberry Street just south of Denton's Historic Square, a short walk from the 1896 Courthouse-on-the-Square.

The park is home to the Bayless-Selby House museum and the Quakertown House museum as well as our Welcome Center which is also a historic Denton structure. The park has plenty of open space and regularly hosts community events such as the Farmers' Market, the Community Market, live music, storytelling and more. Come visit a little piece of Denton County's past right here in the present.


Our mission is to enhance the quality of life of residents and visitors through educational programs that acquire, preserve, protect, promote, and interpret the history and culture of Denton County.
