The Bayless-Selby House Museum is a Victorian-era home that was relocated to the Historical Park of Denton County and then beautifully restored. The project was undertaken by a joint effort of local government. Tours are free and available during regular hours.

What's interesting is that the house showcases more than Victorian-era residence. It's more like it's about Victorian living. The house, its furnishings, and gardens all have been tailored to reflect Victorian-period living.

The Historical Park of Denton County is about three blocks from the courthouse, so do look it up if your already there.
