Bonnie and Clyde Pass Through Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow, seen as violent criminals during the Great Depression and later sensationalized in popular culture, were well known in Denton long before their names were in lights on the Campus Theater's marquee. The North Texas Connection Bonnie and Clyde stood alongside bank robber John Dillinger as the face of the violence some turned to to survive the harsh realities of the Great Depression. Jett said the notion that Bonnie was a key part of the duo's criminal pursuits is more legend than fact. Clyde, one of these 'public enemies' called North Texas home. Robin Jett, a Lewisville resident and author of 'Traveling History With Bonnie and Clyde," said Clyde lived in west Dallas. Jett said some accounts place Clyde's first foray into his life of crime took place in the heart of downtown Denton.

Denton's Founding Fathers Joseph A. Carroll Photos courtesy of Denton County Museum Sitting quietly among the hustle and bustle of Denton traffic at the corner of Carroll Boulevard and Hickory Street is a gray six-story structure. Plastered across the front in jet black letters is its name — Joseph A. Carroll Building. Carroll followed his passion for law, becoming a legal adviser and land agent and became known by residents as one of the founding fathers of Denton. He worked on a committee with surveyor Charles Lacy and fellow legal adviser Otis Welch, naming some of Denton's first streets and deciding how the land would be used. After serving in the Civil War for three years, Carroll was elected district judge. He kept the position for five years before choosing to join the banking business. Carroll's final contribution to Denton was a one-year tenure as the city's mayor. -Alex Young, Staff Writer Otis G. Welch The founding of Denton could not be discussed without mentioning Otis ...

A True Pioneer: The There are few verified written accounts of the life of John B. Denton. No photographs or illustrations of the city and county of Denton's namesake exist. Even his middle name is shrouded in mystery — various accounts claim it's Barnard, Bunard or Bunyan. Historical accounts agree that John B. Denton was a charismatic preacher, laywer and captain who left an indelible mark on North Texas before his untimely death at the hands of Keechi Native Americans. According to an article in the Frontier Times written by Judge J.M. Deaver in 1931, John B. Denton was born in Tennessee July 26,1808. After being orphaned at a young age, Denton apprenticed under blacksmith and Methodist minister Jacob Wells, who moved Denton and his new family to Clark County, Ark. Denton ran away at age 12 to work as a deck hand for ships travelling the Mississippi River and returned to Clark County in 1824. According to the Denton Texas Historical Commission, John B. Denton met his wife, Mary G...

Story of John B. Denton Denton's Death Members of the Texas militia hastily buried Denton's body near a creek in what is now Denton County immediately after his death. In 1856, a group of boys in Denton County found the remains of Captain Denton, identified by survivors of the Native American raid. John Chisum, a rancher in Denton County, took the body and buried it in his yard until 1900, when the Old Settler's Associat ion of Denton County wanted to bury it in the city of Denton. Dug up for the second time, the remains of Denton were finally laid to rest in the southeast corner of the lawn on the city of Den ton's Cou r t house - On -The - Square in a large ceremony on Nov. 21, 1901.

Headlines From History Denton has more than 150 years of history under its belt, making it tough to single out all the bizarre events that have happened since its founding. These articles from more than 100 years ago tell the story of some of Denton County's oddest occurrences. -Sean Gorman, Managing Editor Hunting for Hidden Treasure A Dallas Morning News article from Jan. 17,1899, shed light on one of Denton's as-yet-unsolved mysteries. According to the article, residents heard rumors of buried treasure in west Denton and hidden silver buried west of Aubrey. The story said travelers from Mexico hid a bar of silver underground long before the founding of Denton, and a man riding a covered wagon found the bar and kept it for himself. The man never confirmed if he had taken the treasure, so residents continued the hunt to no avail. Meeting With a Meteor The DMN reported on Dec. 15, 1908, that a meteor "apparently as big as the moon" sailed over Denton, casting a shadow over the city ...

Traditions Mirror UNT Spirit Texas colleges all have their own traditions Texas A&M has the Aggie Bonfire, University of Texas has Bevo the longhorn and Texas Tech has the Carol of Lights. While UNT isn't as well known as its Texas counterparts when it comes to traditions, the Mean Green spirit runs deep with rituals. Homecoming To celebrate the homecoming game for Mean Green football, UNT students hold a parade the morni ng of the game and a bonfire the night before. The parade consists of student- and faculty-made floats, and runs a route from the Square to campus. The bonfire has been a tradition since 1935, and is held annually except when Denton County burn bans are in effect. The Eagle Claw To show support for UNT, all students and alumni have to do is put two fingers in the air making a "V" for victory, hold out their thumb and curl them tight like an eagle's claw. To add exclamation, spirited students even screech out an eagle's "CAW!" Boomer the Victory Cannon One of UN...

Preserving Denton To capture its rich history, the city of Denton has five museums, each offering different information on Denton's culture. Here are two Denton hot spots for infor- mation. Denton County African-American Museum Located directly across from the Bayless- Selby House, the African-American Museum allows guests to experience the rich African- American history of Denton County. "The museum was originally a home located in Quakertown, an area of Denton that was settled by African-American families in the 1880s," said Paula Mears, a museum guide at the Denton County African-American museum. "The house was relocated to Denton's historical park and converted to a museum, and Quakertown is now home to Quakertown Park." The museum features photos and stories of Denton's African -American heritage and historical artifacts recovered from the orig- inal Quakertown. The museum is located at 317 W.
