Antique Farm Truck
Denton was named for two brothers named Dent, stockmen who owned the land on which the original townsite was located. "Dent" was considered too short a name for a town, so it was changed to Denton. Harry Dent was appointed postmaster when the office opened in 1888. (from Cheney's Names on the Face of Montana, Mountain Press Publishing Company)
