Long Description:
The Bayless-Selby House is located in the Denton Historical Park at 317 W. Mulberry St., Denton, Texas. Samuel Bayless and his wife, Mary, came to Denton from Monroe County, Tennessee. In 1884 he purchased a two-room farmhouse, and later they built a two-story Victorian Queen Anne-style addition. Samuel died in 1919, and Mary sold the house in 1920 to R. L. Selby Sr. and his wife, Mary. The Selby family retained ownership until 1970. The house was moved from 1301 Myrtle St. in 1998. After restoration, the house opened as the Bayless-Selby House Museum in 2001.
