Obviously an organization such as ours involves many hours of work from many, many people! Perhaps you feel time or distance do not allow you to volunteer personally, then please consider supporting DCHS through a contribution to, and annual membership in, the Denton Community Historical Society.* The society newsletter, Tales and Trails, is published quarterly. 

This site includes historical information of interest to the residents of Denton and to the many descendants of its early inhabitants who are researching their family history.  

If you have school or church records, newspaper articles, photographs, a family history or two or almost anything related to Denton history and would like to share the materials with other Denton history and Denton family history researchers, please contact me - If you have content to contribute, comments, or suggestions concerning this web site, at
