Exploring Denison


We love exploring small towns. They normally have some really neat history. After leaving Eisenhower State Park, Keltin and I decided to explore Denison, TX. A bit of backstory, President Dwight D. Eisenhower was born in Denison before his family moved to Kansas. His birthplace is now a historic site with a small museum. Before I go any further, let me tell you that everything of interest in Denison is closed on Sunday.

However, just because the buildings were closed didn’t mean that we couldn’t walk the grounds of the historic site. Above is the house Eisenhower was born in. The grounds were beautiful and well kept. Also, the near by state park was named after the 34th President of the U.S.

Denison also has a train museum that was, you guessed it, closed on Sunday. However, we could still stop to see the old engine sitting out front. We really would love to go back on a Saturday to visit the museum and the historic site.

The one thing that was open was the Lake Texoma overlook. It is worth stopping at as it provides a 360° view of Lake Texoma, the lake dam, and the surrounding countryside. Happy travels!
