    Denison is 27 miles north west of Bonham and sits in a rolling and wooded terrain which stretches northward to the shores of Lake Texoma and the Red River Valley. The 34th President of the United States (Dwight Einsenhower) was born in a modest little two-storey house in 1890 which is much visited in Denison. There is 10 acres of a historical parkland which is dedicated to him. The downtown area has many places to visit and there is also the Denison Dam.
