When local residents wanted a county seat right in it’s center, Hiram Cisco, William Woodruff, and William Loving donated 100 acres to become the site for the town. They named the town of Denton in honor of John B. Denton and it became officially established in 1857. The historical commision of Denton has a mission to preserve, protect, and promote the history of the county. Today they have perfectly preserved historic districts, museums, and theaters to explore. It is also a great place to call home and the real estate market is quite competitive. In Denton, the average home values have been steadily increasing since 2012 and the average days houses spend on the market has been between 30-70 since 2015 and just shows how much action this market has. Right now, market trends say it is a buyers market, so that is great for anyone looking for a home here. If that sounds like you, please let us at Crosstown Engineering know if you have any engineering report, foundation evaluation, or home inspection needs.
