Bartonville, Texas,located eight miles south of Denton in south central Denton County, was originally part of the Chinn’s Chapel settlement, established in 1853 by Elisha Chinn. Chinn’s Chapel eventually became three small communities: Bartonville, Shiloh, and Waketon headquarters and warehousing.
Settled in 1878, Bartonville was named after T. Bent Barton. In 1886 a local post office was established, and by 1890 Bartonville had twenty-five residents, a general store, a gristmill, and a cotton gin, all owned by the Barton family. Bartonville’s population rose to an estimated 100 in 1896, and the town had three general stores.
The present town of Bartonville encompassing 6.8 square miles incorporated in 1973. The town has continued to grow as part of the general development of the area north of Dallas / Fort Worth International Airport. Bartonville is adjacent to the master-planned Lantana residential development, which is currently not incorporated.
Texas Historical Commission, THC, markers commemorate diverse topics from the history and architecture of houses, commercial buildings, and religious congregations to events that changed the course of local and state history and individuals who have made lasting contributions to Texas. A subject qualifies for a marker provided two criteria, historical significance and age, are met. This designation honors the subject as an important and educational part of local history. Learn more about the Texas Historical Commission and the Marker Program.
At the request of citizens, the Town of Bartonville began pursuing in October 2014 a historical marker for the 130-year-old Bartonville Store. Council Member Betty Medlock volunteered to spearhead the application project, working with the Denton County Historical Commission to fulfill the necessary requirements. Due to changes in the Commission’s policies regarding “site of” markers, the Commission advised the scope of the project be expanded to focus on the entire history of the Bartonville community, with the Bartonville store as a component of the story.
With that direction, a narrative was written according to THC requirements, reviewed by the Denton Historical Commission, and submitted to the THC who announced their selections in January 2016. Of the hundreds of applications submitted across the state, a small number receive the marker honor. Bartonville received approval, and the marker was placed at Town Hall.
