Denison: One of TMRS' First Participating Cities

Statue of Dwight D. Eish

To celebrate TMRS’ 75th anniversary, we will be showcasing our first eight participating cities throughout the year. This month, we’re highlighting the city of Denison, which is located 50 miles north of Dallas, along the Oklahoma-Texas border. It is a town of unique historical significance.

In 1890, President Dwight D. Eisenhower was born in a modest two-story house in downtown Denison. But the city is more than a historical footnote. It is a place of immense natural beauty.

From the Dwight D. Eisenhower state park, to the nearby Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge on lake Taxoma, Denison is one of Texas’ most beautiful small towns. For all these reasons and more, we are honored to count Denison among our participating cities. We want to thank them for being our partner for these past 75 years.

New Year, New Cities

San Diego Water Tower

The new year brings two new cities to TMRS.

The City of Dawson is the gateway to Lake Navarro Mills. It was established in 1847 as the second city in Navarro County. San Diego boasts a proud history of Tejano culture and is the county seat of Duval County.

TMRS welcomes both cities, which brings our total participating cities to 921.
