Fourteen ladies started a lovely morning in September visiting over ever-flowing coffee and tea, along with tasty selections from the extensive brunch menu at The Chestnut Tree Teahouse & Bistro – Today’s Denton!

Next, their path took them across the street to tour The Courthouse-on-the-Square Museum. The museum docent led the way upstairs to the 1896 courtroom where he shared a storehouse of fascinating and delightful stories about the history of Denton. The Courthouse is one of Denton County’s most celebrated and iconic artifacts and houses a large collection of items significant to Denton’s story of settlement and growth. Did you know the Courthouse is made up from limestone from Denton, pink granite from Austin, and red sandstone from the Pecos region? Yesterday’s Denton!

Stepping back into Today’s Denton, we could choose from abundant flavors for scrumptious ice cream cones eaten in the charming atmosphere of Beth Marie’s On the Square Ice Cream Parlor.

Learning more about our city was very informative and quite enjoyable! The Rockin’ Reds agree Denton is a great city in which to live. Only nine miles north — get out and see what Denton has to offer us.
