Dennison is a village in Tuscarawas County, Ohio, United States. The population was 2,655 at the 2010 census.HistoryThe confluence of coal and railroads drove the development of Dennison. It is conveniently located at the midpoint between Pittsburgh and Columbus -- 100mi from each. At the time, locomotives needed water every 100mi, so Dennison was a natural refilling location. The Dennison Coal Company had mines south of town.In 1864, The Pittsburgh, Cincinnati & St. Louis Railway decided to locate the country's largest railroad shops and yards in Dennison. Dennison Land Company laid out the town of Dennison in 1865 and purchased land expressly for the town. The railyards spanned 40acre. Demand for passenger service led to construction of a station in 1873. Thousands moved to the area for jobs in the roundhouses, turntables and foundries. At its peak, 3,000 people worked in the railyards. The Pennsylvania Railroad Company eventually subsumed the Pittsburgh, Cincinnati & St. Louis Railway.The village incorporated in 1873, and was named for governor William Dennison.During World War I, the Red Cross operated a canteen from a boxcar. Canteen volunteers prepared coffee and sandwiches for troops traveling through by train.
