Denton North Carolina Former and merged names include: Finch Roads, Finch's Crossroads and Sycamore ~ sycamore was because of a large grove of sycamore trees.Then they called that place finches cross roads. In 1882 two young men J M Daniel and BI Harrison decided that the immediate vicinity of the cross roads would be a good location for a general store . According to land purchase from Roby Morris , Daniel and Harrison erected a store building approximately 18 x 40 feet a building which long stood on the northeast boundary of where the Hill Motor Co. did stand and now the Classic Restaurant . The building stocked with groceries, drygoods and hardware. A larger stock than could not be found at any other store in southern Davidson County with the exception of Jackson Hill, and proceeded to do what was locally considered a profitable business. In to the building the Post Office was moved and May 23, 1883 . BI Harrison became the towns third postmaster. During his second year in office mail service was daily, where prior to that it was brought down from Thomasville NC.
