Denny was on the Houston and Texas Central Railway in the eastern corner of Falls County. Although Denny served primarily as a railroad siding, a small cluster of businesses and residences developed at the site. A post office was established there in 1899, and by 1914 a general store and a grocery were also in operation. The Denny post office was discontinued in 1917. County highway maps in the 1940s continued to show Denny as a railroad siding with several houses nearby, but by the 1980s the community was no longer marked on maps.
