that many can come
'home to the memories'
. Denton CommunityHistorical Society Post Office Box 405, Denton, NE 68339
Interest in establishing a historical society arose during planning of the 125th anniversary of the founding of Denton -- celebrated July 27-28, 1996. Over the next several months discussions continued and on Tuesday, January 14, 1997 an organizational meeting was held and the Denton Community Historical Society was formed.
We invite everyone with an interest and knowledge of Denton and the surrounding community to participate in preserving the history and heritage of our community for posterity -- that many can come 'home to the memories' to revisit and relive some of the past and to visit the continuing growth of Denton, Nebraska.
.The Denton Community Historical Society (DCHS) holds as its primary responsibility to collect, preserve, research and interpret objects, artifacts, documents and published materials relative to the heritage and cultural environment of people and events in the Village of Denton and the surrounding areas of Denton, Berks, Cheese Creek, Rokeby, Yankee Hill, Burnham, Cobb Junction, Centerville and Emerald.As an educational institution, the Society encourages public interest and participation in its activities through special programs, publications and distribution of information via the news media. The Society will provide interpretive, research and preservation assistance to other institutions and individuals to the extent our resources will allow.

Plans for this page are to include historical information of interest to the residents of Denton and to the many descendants of its early inhabitants who are researching their family history. If you have school or church records, newpaper articles, photographs, a family history or two or almost anything related to Denton history and would like to share the materials with other Denton history and Denton family history readers of this page, please contact me - Melanie Cox
Obviously an organization such as ours involves many hours of work from many, many people! Perhaps you feel time or distance do not allow you to volunteer personally -- then please consider supporting DCHS through a contribution to, and annual membership in, the Denton Community Historical Society.* The society newsletter, Tales and Trails, is published quarterly.
