About Denton, TX


Denton is located at the far end of the Dallas-Ft Worth metroplex and is the county seat of Denton County. Both the city and the county were named after John B. Denton, a Texas militia captain. Denton is in the midst of Texas Horse Country and has the largest concentration of horse farms with the widest variety of breeds and disciplines in the world.



The population of Denton was 139,896 in the 2020 census. This makes it the 27th most populous city in Texas and the 197th in the United States. In 1980 there were only 48,063 residents but the addition of railway lines, airports, colleges and universities and industry caused a major population increase over the years.


In 1846 a Texas land grant led to the formation of Denton County and the city of Denton was incorporated twenty years later. In 1881 the city had a great economic surge due to the arrival of not one but two railroad lines. The Texas and Pacific and the Missouri, Kansas, and Texas, better known as the Katy, created a link to Dallas and Ft Worth from Denton. Prior to the rail lines, the greatest population growth was observed. This was the result of favorable farming opportunities and the anticipation of the railroads and created an ideal environment for the formation of The University of Northern Texas in 1890 and later the Texas Woman’s University in 1901. The completion of the Dallas-Ft Worth International Airport further spurred economic growth.



Education is a major factor in the Denton economy. The two universities offer advancement to more than 45,000 students each year. In 1980 Victor Equipment Company and Peterbilt joined established firms such as Moore Business Forms and Morrison Milling Company further adding to the economic strength of the city. 

Music is a large part of the Denton scene. The first College of Music in the nation began at the University of Northern Texas and attracted talented musicians such as Norah Jones and Don Henley who both honed their careers in Denton. Today Denton is the home to two top music festivals, The Denton Jazz Festival and the Denton Blues East which continue to attract large crowds and talented artists.


Fun Fact

Dallas-Area Electric Utility Company Resources

Texas, like many states in the U.S., has a deregulated energy market. Meaning, the market allows energy users to choose who supplies their electricity. Your energy will rely on two parties — your utility and provider. The local utility is Oncor Electric in Denton, and this company handles power line maintenance and electricity distribution in your area. Your provider, often called a Retail Electric Provider (REP), supplies the electricity Oncor distributes.

Here is a map of Oncor’s service territory in Texas along with the major cities it covers. As you can see, both Denton, Dallas and Fort Worth are within the Oncor territory:

You have the power to choose your REP, but figuring out who has the best rate can be a challenge. EnergyPricing.com simplifies the process, so you can see available rates and choose the best one for you.

Before you start your search, you should note when your current contract ends to avoid termination fees. You should also consider what type of rate you’re looking for. While fixed rates involve a consistent price throughout your agreement, variable rates rise and fall with the energy market.
