Denison, Texas, Grayson County 1886. Beck & Pauli, litho.

Reproduction map of the community known as Denison, TX, published in 1886. Named for businessman George Denison, the town of Denison was founded in 1872, just fourteen years before this map was published. Ideally situated at the intersection of the Missouri-Kansas-Texas (MKT) Railroad and the Red River, the town was an important commercial center in the "Old West". The famous "Doc" Holliday had offices in Denison in 1875.

Local horticulturalist, T. V. Munson earned induction into the French Legion of Honor when he pioneered methods in creating grape vines resistant to the phylloxera disease, which destroyed the vast majority of wine grapes in Europe in the mid-1800s. Denison was also granted sister city status, becoming a sister city with Cognac, France.

A most notable Denison citizen was Dwight D. Eisenhower, who was born in Denison, just four years after this map was published.

Map features inset illustrations of the Denison Improvement Company's Addition as well as a detailed illustration of Main Street.
