Bars, gambling halls, and houses of prostitution. That is what was found at one time during the history of this town. It is written that the area was orderly. I suppose it is one’s interpretation. Perhaps everyone paid their taxes.
Nowadays, you won’t find a gambling hall in Denison but you will find gambling addiction recovery programs. That is because up the road just on the other side of that big Red River is Choctaw Casino. People spend alot of time and hard earned money there. There are some bars scattered across town, establishments that really won’t ever diminish. As for houses of ill repute, illegal in Denison, although this activity is cleverly disguised in the form of strip clubs, massage parlors and the like. But I am unsure of their existance here. Of course, there is always the neighbor down the block. You know.
But this isn’t all one needs to know about Denison. The first subject that comes to mind when referring to Denison is Dwight D Eisenhower. You’ll find plenty of history on 34 president of the United States of America.
