Denison, Grayson County, Texas 1891. Drawn by T. M. Fowler.

Reproduction map of the community known as Denison, TX, published by Thaddeus Fowler in 1891. Named for businessman George Denison, the town of Denison was founded in 1872. 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-1800's. Denison was also granted sister city status, becoming a sister city with Cognac, France. T. V. Munson is listed as one of the directors of the "National Bank of Denison" on this map.

Dwight D. Eisenhower was born in Denison, and was just one year old when this map was published.
