Event description

Description

The warm glow of street lamps enhances safety, ambiance, and walking to Denton’s Square. The communities in the historic residential areas between the Square and UNT started a project five years ago to “light the way” for safe travel along West Oak and West Hickory Streets to connect the downtown Square with neighborhoods and the UNT campus. The addition of 36 historic-style street lamps to date is an on-going project of Historic Denton, Inc., a 501c3 nonprofit, with a current focus on West Hickory Street, followed by other neighborhood streets.

In collaboration with Denton Municipal Electric (DME), the neighborhoods fund street lamps, which cost $2,000 per pole with DME providing installation and maintenance. To support this community project, the neighborhood began the Historic Denton Home Tour on the first Saturday of December.

This year’s Denton Historic Home Tour is on Saturday, December 1, from 1 to 5 p.m.

Six featured homes representing several architectural styles and built between 1900 and 1924 will be open to the community. These homes are located in two historic neighborhoods north of UNT, on created by the early faculty of the North Texas State Normal (now UNT) and the other in the John B. Denton College Neighborhood.
