Denison is a city in Grayson County and is one of the two major cities in the Sherman-Denison Metropolitan Statistical Area. Denison was founded in 1872 as the connecting point of the MKT, a.k.a Katy depot, and Texas Central Rail Lines. Hence, the city was named after the Katy vice president George Denison. Since the town was established close to two significant transportation channels, Denison became a vital commercial center in the 19th century, serving as the first rail stop across from the Indian Territory. The city is also known as the birthplace of Dwight David Eisenhower, a son of a Katy engineer who served as a five-star Army general, a Supreme Commander of the Allied Expeditionary Force in Europe, and the 34th President of the United States.
