This small town has so much potential! It just appears to be neglected, forgotten by a new generation and left to deteriorate. There's so much history here and it's obvious that back in the 1970's there was a group of individuals that were determined to...More

We visited a number of antique shoppes on a nice Saturday afternoon. The old buildings are so charming. Unfortunately, I could't help but feel the town is dying. I hope I'm wrong, but there are so many vacant buildings, I assume victims of "progress" out...More

Downtown Denison is hopping... It has old world charm and is kept up very well. There are several shops that will interest you.

Downtown Denison has worked hard to have something for everyone. There truly is something to entertain everyone, from antique shopping, to small town cafes, even a winery. The chamber calendar boasts many family friendly events.

The historic feel of this street is amazing, From the antique furniture stores to the candy shoppe, it's like the buildings are frozen in time. One of my favorite things was finding candy from yester year and the feel of walking where our anscestors once...More

I went there a few days ago and it was very old and run down. The roads were brick and it looked like it was built in the wagon times! The employees in the antique store didn't say hello when I walked in! Very rude.
