A Home Town Place – A visit to Dixon is pure hometown.
Located on Highway 28 just 13 miles north of I-44, Dixon began as a railroad boom-town in 1869 and soon became a commerce community.
Head into Dixon’s downtown square which still feels like a down-home place where early settlers came for supplies and to sell their wares. Stroll the downtown sidewalls and follow the murals depicting Dixon’s history displayed along the store front windows. Grab a bite at one of Dixon’s hometown eateries and browse through local antique stores.
Spend the day playing a round of golf, or an evening of rodeo at the Dixon Saddle Club. Festivals and events provide endless entertainment for the entire family with the Dixon Cow Days Festival, held the third weekend in September, where you have a chance to win a cow! Be sure to check out the calendar of events for upcoming music performances held at Music in the Barn. For the sportsman or families, float the beautiful Gasconade River. Enjoy camping, hiking and family bonfires or plan your retreat to a resort from the 1930’s surrounded by a beautiful 7 acre lake.
