Overview

The three rooms that make up this museum were once home to families who lived in the African American community of Quakertown in Denton, Texas. The museum is now home to artifacts that tell the stories of those families, and many more. The stories that will not be forgotten are told through photographs and information about many of the African American families from 1875, when they first came from Dallas seeking a better life.

Love how they moved these old houses to downtown, the history is amazing but they could add more furniture.

This museum is free, and it is worth taking note of how different this is than most other museums. In most museums, you see the finery and how fancy things were. In this home,while it is clean and restored, it is nothing fancy. They lived...More

The Denton County African American Museum was actually one of my favorite museum experiences I have had! Although it is very small, we spent probably 45 minutes there. A docent gives you a tour, and ours was very knowledgeable and did a great job. We...More
